Apple crumble

So, I was GOING to make this recipe from The Blue Cookbook.
But then I realised that I didn't have rhubarb. Or an orange. And I like my crumble to have coconut in the topping.

I guess you could say I was inspired by The Blue Cookbook to make a crumble that bore almost no resemblance to the above recipe! So here is what I did:

Peeled and chopped about five apples. And a couple of feijoas, because I had some. They look gross, but taste good.
Then I sprinkled them with just a little white sugar. My sugar has vanilla beans stored in it, so it's pretty tasty. You could stew the apples, or use tinned fruit. I kind of like my apples to retain some crunch though, so I didn't pre-cook them.

The crumble part was the same as the recipe above, except that I added about 1/3 cup of shredded coconut, and substituted the flour with ground almonds. Actually, I guess my crumble part was NOT the same as the recipe!
Then I cooked it at 180C for about half an hour. My apples were cooked, but with a tiny bit of crunch left. This was an all-round delicious wintry dessert. It's not quite a health food, but as desserts go at least it has a little nutrition mixed in with the butter and sugar!


  1. Mmmmm, crumble... I might pilfer that topping recipe and make up my own fruit part!

    And you're right - those feijoas look pretty disgusting...

  2. Feel free to make your own crumble!

    Feijoas and apples go pretty well together... I just don't look. When it's covered in crumble, it's not so bad.
