Ingredients

Scale

For crumble topping:

  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon (70 g) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (70 g) almond flour
  • 1/3 cup (70 g) brown sugar
  • 2.5 oz. (70 g) unsalted butter, slightly softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt

For the fruit filling:

  • 2 large apples (450 g) - see note #1
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) lemon juice
  • 2 cups (350 g) fresh blueberries, washed and dried
  • 1 tablespoon (8 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon (12 g) brown sugar

For serving (optional):

  • Vanilla ice cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F (177˚C). Prepare a 9-inch (23 cm) ceramic pie dish.
  2. To make the crumble topping, in a mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, brown sugar, almond flour, salt, and cinnamon. Add the softened butter to the dry ingredients and rub your hands in the flour until you get a crumbly texture. Add flaked almonds and refrigerate. 
  3. To make the fruit garnish, in a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and cinnamon with a mini whisk or a fork. Wash the apples, remove the core, peel them, and cut them into cubes. Transfer them to a large bowl, and sprinkle them with lemon juice to keep them from blackening. Add washed and dried blueberries to the apples. Sprinkle the sugar and flour mixture over the fruits, and toss to coat them evenly.
  4. Immediately transfer the apple mixture to the prepared pan. Sprinkle the crumble mixture in an even layer over the fruit filling. Try to clump the dough into pieces of different sizes, but avoid pressing down on the crumble. 
  5. Bake the crumble in the middle oven rack for 45-50 minutes, until the topping is golden brown, the fruit is tender, and the syrup is bubbling up actively around the dish edges. Remove from the oven, set aside 10 minutes to cool, and enjoy warm or at room temperature.

Notes

  1. 2 large-sized whole apples make about 3-3 1/2 cups of peeled and cubed apples.
  2. There is no need to thaw frozen blueberries for the recipe. Add a few more minutes to bake to ensure the filling is thoroughly cooked.
  3. Keep the crumble topping in the fridge or freezer until ready to use.
  4. Cover the pan with aluminum foil if the crumble browns too quickly to prevent it from burning.
  5. The thickness of the syrup varies from syrupy to chunky blueberry sauce-like. If you feel too liquid, bring it to the oven again for a few minutes.
  6. Baking in a glass pan, lower the oven temperature by 15°C (25°F) and bake the crumble for 10 minutes longer.
  7. If you need to recalculate the amount of ingredients for a square baking dish, use this simple cake pan converter.
  8. Make-ahead option: Prepare crumble, cover it with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Cut apples, sprinkle them with lemon juice, and chill. Don't add sugar: it will tend to melt and release juices. Once ready to bake, toss everything in a baking pan and bring to the preheated oven. 
  9. Nutritional information excludes ice cream.
