Apple and passion fruit crumble

Apple and passion fruit crumble / Crumble de maçã e maracujá

Are you tired of my apple recipes yet? :)

I know I’ve been using apples like crazy lately, and must confess that I still intend to make a couple of recipes with them before the end of their season.
Let me tell you one delicious thing I found out the other day: I never knew apples and passion fruit were so good together. Luckily, Bill did. :)

Apple and passion fruit crumble / Crumble de maçã e maracujá

Apple and passion fruit crumble

6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced – I used Gala
½ cup (100g) caster sugar
pulp from 8 passion fruit*

Topping:
1 cup (115g) rolled oats
2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon (129g) brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup (46g) all purpose flour
100g unsalted butter, softened
vanilla ice cream or heavy cream, to serve – yogurt goes really well, too

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F; butter a 2-liter baking dish. Mix together the apples, sugar and passion fruit pulp and put in the dish.

Using your fingertips, rub together the oats, brown sugar, flour and butter to make a crumbly topping. Sprinkle over the fruit and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
Serve with ice cream, cream or yogurt.

* the passion fruit I used were huge (there’s a photo here), so 4 were enough

Serves 4

I've never seen or heard of passion fruit being used in a crumble before - don't know what as it sounds wonderfully tropical. Keep the apple recipes coming!

Nice crumble. I just did a rhubarb, strawberry and blueberry crumble this weekend that i posted about.

I also have a giveaway don't miss out!

I made this last night! It was divine!

The only changes I made was using 2 tins of grinadella pulp instead of fresh.

Also my chunks of apples and topping was still raw after 30 minutes. After a further 20 minutes, the juices were caramelising at the sides and the topping crisp and brown!

What a delight I will be making this as a standard from now on.

I love passion fruit, I wish it was easier to get here in Canada, (and not crazy expensive). I ate it tons in Australia and New Zealand though and I'm hooked. Your crumble sounds delicious!

Did you have the seeds as part of the pulp or did you grind them all down to nothing or not use them at all?

Patricia Scarpin said...

Hey, Anonymous - the seeds were part of the pulp, I used fresh passion fruit.
