Nut Crumble

  • 50 g pecans
  • 50 g almonds
  • 30 g macadamias
  • 30 g arrowroot starch
  • 20 g coconut flakes
  • 40 g rapadura
  • 40 g coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt

Apple and blueberries

  • 8-10 small apples cored and quartered (600g peeled, cored weight)
  • 200 g blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1.5 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • 70 g deseeded medjool dates
  • 270 ml Ayam coconut cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 30 g arrowroot starch
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder


  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a small baking dish – I use a 1.5L round Tupperware Ultrapro.

To Make Crumble

  • Place all nut crumble ingredients in mixer bowl. TURBO/3 times/MC on. Remove from bowl, set aside.

To Cook Apples

  • Place apples in steaming basket and set in place inside bowl. Add 600g water. Cook 20 minutes/100/speed 4/MC on.
  • Remove basket. Weigh 270g of the cooking water and set aside. Discard remaining cooking water. Return the 270g water to the mixer bowl.
  • Transfer apples into prepared baking dish. Add blueberries.
  • In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon then add to the apples/blueberries. Stir thoroughly.
  • Top with the nut crumble mixture, ensuring an even coverage.
  • Bake 20 minutes, or until golden.

To Make Custard

  • Add dates to the 270g reserved cooking water in mixer bowl. Blitz 1 minute/speed 9/MC on.
  • Add all remaining custard ingredients. Cook 8 minutes/90/speed 4/MC on.
  • Serve crumble warm or cold, with a generous covering of custard.


– To my delight (and I hope your’s too!) this is a pouring custard, even after refrigerating!
– If you’d like to make the Custard and not the Apple & Blueberry Nut Crumble, replace the cooking water with water.

I love this! I only made the Apple and Blueberry Crumble, not the custard component. I cut each quarter of apple in to three and saved about 1/3 of the crumble for another day. Such an easy recipe and the crumble is absolutely delicious.

Made the custard first and chilled it down as hubby doesn’t like warm custard.. Go figure..;)
Delicious and not too sweet..even when I added in some strawberries I had in the freezer..(I blitzed them and stirred through the cooked Apple mix with semi frozen fresh blueberries)

Hubby is excited that I am going away for 2 nights and leaving him the leftovers.
