  • remove from processor & combine by hand, roll in cling film in a salami size roll & freeze
  • for the filling – using a pie dish, mix the apples, cinnamon, salt & cake flour & sugar well. flatten with back of a Table spoon. clean the edges of the bowl well
  • when the crumble is frozen, use the large side of a grater, grate the crumble generously over the filling, covering it really well & a good stick layer. clean off the excess on the sides, do not neaten the crumble after it was grated on, needs to look like grated cheese on top
  • bake in a 180-degree Celsius oven for approximately 20 minutes. you will know it is ready when the liquid from the filling comes up on the sides
  • for the sauce – combine all the ingredients in a bowl & cook over a double boiler, whisking constantly until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon
  • serve with clotted cream, fresh blueberries & the Amarula Angalise


For the crumble, you can substitute the apples for pears & add raisins or cranberries and by freezing the crumble dough it is easier to work with.
