Fruit Crumble Redux - TYPO CORRECTED!!
OK, I tried making the apple-pear-berry crumble again the other night; this time I used my oven thermometer to keep track of the temperature. Unfortunately it fluctuated quite a bit, but it seemed to AVERAGE around 325 degrees Fahrenheit for most of the 40 minutes it was in the oven.
While I was reviewing the recipe I posted the other day, I discovered a TYPO in the ingredients!! :(
I've now fixed the old post, and am posting the recipe again, just to be sure that everyone has the corrected version. I made a couple of other minor changes as well. I'm SO sorry about that and I hope that you didn't have a bad experience with this recipe already!!
Please give it one more try!
Triple-Coconut Berry-Apple-Pear Crumble
("triple" because I use coconut flour, coconut nectar, and coconut oil!)
1 C almond flour
1/2 C coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
pinch or two of nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 C of coconut nectar (or 1/4 C agave nectar)
1/3 C melted coconut oil (or melted butter)
4 large pears, peeled and sliced (or 2 pears and 2 medium apples, very THINLY sliced)
1 1/2 - 2 C fresh or frozen berries
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
2 tsp cornstarch or arrowroot
2-3 T coconut nectar (or honey or agave)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and lightly oil the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch pie plate.
Mix together the dry ingredients for the topping, then add the coconut oil and coconut nectar. Blend well; it should be stiff and somewhat crumbly, of course.
Toss the fruit together with the other ingredients for the filling. Sprinkle a small amount of the crumble topping on the the bottom of the pie plate, then spread the filling in the pan. Use your fingers to crumble the remaining topping over the fruit filling.
Bake at 325 F for 30 - 40 minutes. After approximately 30 minutes test with a sharp knife, skewer or toothpick; if the apple/pear slices are very tender, and the topping is a deep golden brown, remove from oven. Serve warm as is, or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
