Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 9 portions
  • For the crumble:
  • 1½ cup of quick oats
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup of butter
  • ⅓ cup of cane sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of saigon cinnamon (optional)
  • For the fruit layer:
  • 8 apples (I used Cortland apples because they keep their shape during cooking and have a nice tartness to them)
  • 2 tablespoons of grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons of tapioca starch (or corn starch)
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of saigon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of green cardamom powder
  • pinch of ground cloves
  1. - Start by making your crumble. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and, with your hands, break down the soft but still cold(wish) butter in the mixture. A few clumps of butters are absolutely acceptable and the end texture should be resembling to wet sand. Reserve in the fridge.
  2. - Pre-heat your oven at 350 and get yourself a 9x9 brownie pan.
  3. - Remove skin and cores of the apples and cut them in to cubes. In a mixing bowl, mix everything together.
  4. - Transfer the fruit layer in your pan and add your crumble on top.
  5. - Bake for 45 minutes.
