For the crumble:

  • 7 Pc. Apples (Braeburn or Boskoop)
  • 5 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 115 g Butter
  • 140 g Flour
  • 125 g Sugar
  • 2,5 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1,5 pinch Salt
  • 125 g Ground almonds

For the vanilla sauce:

  • 0,5 Pc. Vanilla pod
  • 125 ml Milk
  • 125 g Whipped cream
  • 25 g Sugar
  • 1 Pc. Egg (M)
  • 1 Pc. Egg yolk (M)



  • Preheat the oven to 180 ° C (top / bottom heat). Peel the apples and hollow out the core, cut into thin wedges and place in a baking dish. Drizzle with lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown.
  • Cut butter at room temperature into cubes. Mix with the flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and almonds and knead into sprinkles with your hands.
  • Spread the sprinkles over the apples so that they are all covered. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes. Serve the apple crumble while it is still warm.

Vanilla sauce:

  • Cut the vanilla pod lengthways and scrape out the pulp. Bring the milk, cream, sugar, vanilla pod and pulp to the boil in a saucepan while stirring. Then remove the vanilla pod again.
  • Mix the egg and yolk in a metal bowl with a whisk. Pour in the vanilla cream. Heat on a hot water bath, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens.
  • Pass the vanilla sauce through a sieve, spread over the apple crumble.
