Over the years I have created my favourite gluten free apple crumble recipe that is safe and tasty for the whole family to enjoy. I believe in the US this type of dessert is known as an apple crisp? Please correct me if I am wrong.
The first time my son tried it he said:
Coming from a chef, I was more than pleased with that comment.
Many people struggle with ideas for gluten free desserts, and this is a really simple pudding that anyone can make. A good opportunity to use up all those windfall apples in the autumn or fall, perhaps? Who can resist warming comfort food like this?
Using rice flour in this recipe gives additional crunch to the topping. Normally I steer away from this flour, as for many recipes you don't want that texture to be apparent in your baked goods.
Substitute the apples with rhubarb, blackberries, or prunes and reduce the cooking time by 10 minutes.
You could also use a demerara sugar instead of caster to give more texture and a lovely caramelized flavour to your gluten free apple crumble recipe.
Another option is to add some sultanas or raising in with the apples.
You can spice things up a little with ground cinnamon or nutmeg.
