Apple Crumble

This recipe is based on the one called "Sweet Apple Buckle" from a Gooseberry Patch Family Favorites, however, I changed it considerably, especially by drastically removing the amount of sugar.

You will need

6 medium sized apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 c flour +1/2c whole wheat flour mix (I actually used rye, spelt and whole wheat flour).
2 TBSP brown sugar + 1 TBSP honey
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 c butter, melted

Arrange sliced apples in a baking dish of the size shown in the picture above. In a bowl, combine flours, sugar, honey, baking powder and salt. Add the egg and mix until crumbly. Spread over the apples. Pour melted butter all over and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at about 175*C for +/- 25 min, reduce the heat till 160*C, bake for ab. 20 more minutes or until it starts getting too brown. Serve with whipped cream as a dessert or by a cup of tea/coffee.


  1. One thought I have about the sugar is that the most common apple used in baking (some consider it the ONLY one one should use,) is the green apple. Traditionally, it is extremely tart, but strong enough to survive the temperatures needed in baking.
