Apple Crumble Slice – Tranci di Crumble alla Mela

Music: Teenage Dream, Katy Perry. If I had to think of something sweet that recalls girlhood, I’d probably choose some fresh and creamy treat (low calorie, of course!). Popsicles would be perfect, except that I’m not a big fan of popsicles and don’t eat them in my usual life. If I had to think of something that recalls my teenage days, I’d choose something buttery, warm and with a lot of cinnamon in it. My friend Giulia and I love cinnamon, and because we spent most of those days together, our teenage dreams are made of cinnamon clouds, vanilla skies and gingerbread… boys – you can always count on them, and they’re never enough. I know it’s weird, but we’re like that! Which is the food that best recalls your teenage self? Let me know, I’m so curious!



40 gr sugar

110 gr flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 egg, lightly beaten

500 gr butter, melted

your favourite jam

1 apple, diced


Crumble topping:

110 gr spelt flour

40 gr sugar

70 gr cold butter, chopped

Mix together the sugar, flour, baking powder, egg and butter until well combined. Press into the base of a mould lined with non-stick baking paper and bake at 180° C for 10-15 minutes. In the meanwhile, mix the diced apple with the grounded cinnamon in a bowl. Remove the base from the oven and spoon some jam over it, then top with the diced apple and the crumble topping. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until golden.

    Ciao e grazie mille della visita! Anche il tuo blog è parecchio interessante e se tu vuoi iniziare a cucire…io vorrei migliorare la mia cucina!

    Sai per caso dove posso trovare una semplice ricetta per i macarons?

    buono il crumble di mela (qesta sì che è mela 🙂
    il cibo che più mi ricorda la mia giovinezza, anzi fanciullezza, sono i roll di liquirizia comprati la domenica mattina dopo la messa da un omino che aveva un carretto!
    pensa a quanto sono ‘antico’ !!! 🙂

  3. sei coraggioso, parti subito dalle cose più difficili! comunque per i macarons ti consiglio . ci sono tante versioni, tutte buonissime! io aspetto il tuo prossimo post. in bocca al lupo con i macarons!
