What do you do when you feel like two things at the same time? I say have them both. Green apples that almost dominated the air with their scent, and deep, dark, irresistible, hot melted chocolate – just oozing it’s aphrodisiac magic on the palette. A marriage that merged into quite a sublime delight – and here is the recipe for you to indulge in – and it’s simple to make too.
- 6 large green cooking apples, peeled, cored and cut into 6
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- ½ cup of water
Stew the apples with the above ingredients until tender in a small saucepan on a low heat, covered, but don’t over-cook them – 25 minutes or so should do the job. Now transfer the apples into a medium sized baking tray, whilst you now make the crumble.
INGREDIENTS FOR THE CRUMBLE
- 1 cup of self-raising plain unbleached flour
- ¾ cup of brown rice flour
- a few drops of almond essence
- 2 tbsp vegan butter/margarine
- 2½ tbsp white sugar
Place in food processor and allow to process for half a minute until a nice crumble has formed into small pieces. If the mix becomes too crumbly, add a little more margarine, or conversely, if the mix is too congealed, do add some more flour until the mix becomes a finer crumble (see image below).
Now place the crumble on top of the apples, and bake in a hot oven until it turns golden.
This needs to be made using the traditional bain marie method – pour an inch of hot water in a small saucepan, then sit an empty bowl inside the saucepan, touching the base, and place 1 cup of solid dark vegan chocolate in the bowl. Allow to cook on a low heat until the chocolate melts. Then pour the chocolate sauce over the crumble, and serve with the chilled vegan cream of your choice (I use Provamel soya). See you in Heaven !!!
