Uhm, I love a fresh made, warm Crumble Cake with Apples and Cinnamon, served with an ice cold scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream!
It’s the best dessert in the world!!
Your can prepare everything ahead and just keep it in the fridge until time is – and often, we also like to bake this dessert on the grill after a nice BBQ with friends or family – in this way the kitchen also stays nice and clean ;o)
I combine the filling in a tons of ways, but this is the most classic way to serve the crumble cake – but actually you can use all kind of fruit (fresh or frozen) like pears, rhubarb, plums, gooseberries, strawberries etc – or even combine them!!
Crumble Cake with Apples and Cinnamon
Ingredients: (serves 8)
4 apples (about 1 lb)
1/2 cup homemade vanilla sugar (or regular sugar mixed with beans from one vanilla pod or 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup dark brown sugar (or regular sugar)
1 1/4 stick butter (125 g)
1 1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup chopped almonds
Cut the apples in small pieces and mix with vanilla sugar, cinnamon and dark brown sugar.
Pour into a oven proof tray (10 in x 10 in) or use a foil pan if you bake it on your Weber Grill.
Mix cold butter with oats, flour and roughly chopped almonds.
Add the topping and bake the cake at 400° F for about 25-30 minutes.
Serve with a nice scoop of Vanilla Ice – and get wings 😇
