Last-minute guests, one of whom is on a diet. gluten-freea leftover homemade compote in the refrigerator or some apples in the fruit basket, a box of gluten-free cookies in the cupboard, hop, hop here is the crumble express. As always for crumbles, I advise you to prepare them as an individual version rather than as a family dish because it is clearly uncut.
For 4 persons :
- 4 apples (Reinettes Canada for me)
- 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons of cane sugar
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 8 butter palets gluten-free
Prepare the compote: Peel and seed the apples. Cut them into cubes. Put them in a frying pan with 2 tablespoons of water and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Cover and let stew for about 15 minutes. I like it when there are small pieces left. Let cool and then add the finely grated zest of a lime. Mix. Divide this compote between 4 ramekins.
Preheat the furnace to 200°C.
Take out 8 palets with gluten-free butter. Mix them roughly. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly between the 4 ramekins and bake for 5 minutes (grill position, to brown).
Taste warm, a delight!
If you are not very “lemony”, you can flavor your applesauce with cinnamon, vanilla, or why not a pinch of ginger or cardamom.
