Recipe: The Best Gluten Free Apple Crumble Slice

The Best Gluten Free Apple Crumble Slice Recipe - gluten free dessert recipes, easy homemade slices, healthy fall recipes

In the Southern In Law house, recipes are always measured by rank. 

"What do you think?" "Well, I like it more than the Paleo Banana Bread but it still doesn't beat The Ultimate Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe" - for a long time that meant the recipe was ridiculously delicious as it took the #2 spot. 

It didn't matter what I did, nothing would take the top spot over those vegan chocolate chip cookies..... 

Until now... 

The Best Gluten Free Apple Crumble Slice Recipe - gluten free dessert recipes, easy homemade slices, healthy fall recipes

I was playing around in the kitchen on a Sunday afternoon and found a lonesome green apple sitting in the bottom of my produce drawer - so I decided it was destined for greatness. 

I wanted to make some kind of cake, but then I also felt like apple crumble - so I decided to combine the two. 

Little did I know, this humble apple crumble cake would become our family's new favourite. 

While it baked away in the oven, the house smelt like fall and after waiting for it to cool a little (hello, impatient), I carefully sliced it into squares and grabbed a piece. 

HELLLOOOOOO heaven.  It was so good, in fact, that both Jesse and I had eaten four or so pieces each in 5 minutes and were contemplating hiding it from my parents so they wouldn't devour the rest. 

It's buttery and delicious and so easy to make - and don't worry if it disappears in seconds because it's best eaten fresh (or that's the excuse we use). 
So let me share the recipe with you! >>

The Best Gluten Free Apple Crumble Slice Recipe
makes one slice tray that's gluten free, lower fat and lower sugar

For the cake base:
5 tbsp (80g) butter, cut into cubes 
1/3 cup + 1 tbsp (75g) coconut sugar or brown sugar 
5 tbsp (80g) applesauce 
2 eggs 
1 1/2 cups (180g) gluten free plain flour 
1 tsp baking powder 
1 tsp cinnamon 
1 granny smith apple, peeled and diced

For the crumble topping: 
1/ cup (50g) coconut sugar or brown sugar
1/4 cup (30g) gluten free plain flour 
2 tbsp (30g) butter 
  • Preheat your oven to 180C/355F and line a slice pan with baking paper. (You can also use an 8x8" tin if you don't have a slice tin)
  • In a mixer, beat the butter and sugar for your cake base until light and fluffy. 
  • Add your applesauce and eggs, scraping down the sides to incorporate everything. 
  • Add in your sifted flour, baking powder and cinnamon and mix until just combined.
  • Stir through your apples and scoop your mixture into your prepared slice tin, smoothing out the edges to form an even layer.
  • In a food processor or blender (or by hand, the food processor is much faster though!), add your topping ingredients and pulse until the mix resembles find breadcrumb. 
  • Press your crumble topping together to form a ball and break off pieces, crumbling them over your cake base. 
  • Bake your slice for 40-50 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
  • Allow to cool slightly before slicing and serving. This slice is best on the day it's made, but can be kept for 2-3 days in an airtight container at room temperature or frozen to defrost and enjoy later.
But tell me, 
Do you have an ALL TIME FAVOURITE recipe that just can't be topped? What is it?
