Custard Apple Coconut Crumble



Custard Apple Coconut Crumble
Using beautiful, in season, local custard apples in a fresh twist on an old favourite, the apple crumble. Served with the lovely local Maleny Dairies cream.

Ingredients
3 large ripe custard apples
2 large or 3 medium green apples
1 stick cinnamon
3 tablespoons coconut sugar
Water
2 cups organic oats
½ cup almond meal
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon.
½ cup raw organic virgin coconut oil
½ cup spelt flour
1 cup organic desiccated coconut
 1 cup dark coconut sugar
1 large apple crumble baking dish (or 2 smaller ones)
Maleny Dairies cream to serve (or coconut yoghurt for dairy allergies/vegan)

Method
Preheat oven to 180`c
Break open custard apples and remove flesh, making sure to remove the seeds, place in a deep saucepan.
Wash and chop the apples into bite sized pieces, place in saucepan with custard apples.
Cover with water and place in cinnamon stick and 3 tabelspoons coconut sugar.
Simmer slowly on a medium low heat until apples have collapsed slightly. Remove from heat, remove cinnamon stick.
In a bowl combine the oats, flour, sugars, coconut oil , desiccated coconut, chia seeds and cinnamon. Mix together really well.
Pour the apple mixture into the baking dish.
Top with the crumble mixture, press down gently to make sure it is evenly and neatly topping all the apple mixture.
Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes or until the crumble on top has a nice rich, golden colour to it.
Remove and serve while still warm with fresh Maleny Dairies cream.

Notes
This is a beautiful dessert the whole family will love. Great for home dinners, entertaining and dinner parties.
A great recipe for beautiful, seasonal custard apples.
        Swap the dark brown sugar for coconut sugar.
Make it a real coconut experience by serving with some CoYo coconut yoghurt.

Toddler Tips
Kids love apple crumble, it is one of those desserts that is popular with nearly everyone, making this a great family friendly recipe.
Be careful the crumble is not too hot when you serve.
For an extra treat serve with vanilla ice cream.
This is equally nice the next day so great for in the school lunch box too.

  1. OK, you got this person from the United States running to Google again. So, your custard apples are called cherimoya here and they go for $7 or $8 each (our dollar is almost 1 to 1 exchange rate to ours) which is very expensive for a fruit. Not a local delight which is too bad because I've never had one. Sigh....

    1. Eeek tha is rather expensive :(
      I should have put their US name on the post! Sorry.
      Bookworm this will work just as nice with all green apples - just replace the custard apples with ordinary green apples and mayeb just have a custard apple as a treat for you XX

  2. The recipe sounds wonderful. I recal the taste and texture of the custard apple from thirty years ago. Unfortunately, I've never seen it over here in England.

  6. This looks lovely, and I appreciate the introduction to custard apples, though it doesn't sound as if I'll ever eat one! Maybe I'll just plant a tree, if I can find one! ;)

      They are not a strong flavour in this dish at all, so a great recipe if you find yourself with some or even just with normal apples if you like too x :)

    1. Everything here is from my local Maleny IGA so I am guessing most would stock it? Or would be able to get it in for you, mind you my local IGA is amazing and has the best product range :) X
