British influence on South African cuisine has brought Apple Crumble to the table. This version is not too sweet so I suggest not cutting much sugar if you make it as I already reduced it from the original recipe found on http://www.shahiya.com.

Another winner of a recipe using fruit. You hit the mark with the ingredients for sure! I could not find rice flour so used a GF baking mix and it worked fine. Loved the cinnamon and as is my normal addition put a bit of ground nutmeg in there too! I did used blanched almond slivers which worked well. Just loved this dessert and can see I'll be making this again for sure. Tagged in Went to the Market tag game.
- 4 gala apples, peeled and cored
- 6 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup rice flour, mix (1 cup white rice flour to 1/2 cup tapioca starch)
- 1⁄2 cup blanched almond, finely chopped (I really like to add some chopped walnuts as well)
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Cut each apple into thin wedges.
- Place the apples wedges in a deep baking dish. Make sure that the dish is not too big so you will have more than one layer of apple wedges in the bottom of the dish.
- Sprinkle the apple wedges evenly with cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
- To prepare the crumble crust, combine nuts, flour mix and 4 tablespoons of sugar in a bowl. Add in the butter and knead with your hands until the dough resembles breadcrumbs. Spread the crumble mixture all over the apples.
- Bake in the oven until the apples are tender and the topping mixture is golden (25 minutes).
- Serve warm with vanilla ice cream on the side if desired.
