Pine{Apple} Crumble

Apple Crumble is most definitely one of my father's favourite desserts and tea-time treats of all time! This dessert is not only a very comforting dessert because of the lovely Cinnamon smell that fills up the kitchen once you open the oven door, it is also one of the most versatile ones.
Whether you like peaches, pineapples, apples or pears, you can probably 'crumble' any fruit that you would like to. Yesterday, I walked into Pick n Pay only to find the freshest Granny Smith green apples that I have had in years. On my way through the fresh fruit and vegetable section I picked up a lovely yellow pineapple as well. Although I didn't mean for it to become a dessert, I came home and thought that while I do love sweet, sour and a little bit of spice together, I'd like to try these two together, in a crumble - pineapple and apples. Today I'm making Pine{Apple} Crumble!

This dessert serves 4-6 people.
This is what I did:
Fruit layer:
4 medium sized Granny Smith apples, sliced
Half a pineapple chopped into squares/slices
45 ml traditional golden syrup
40ml caramel sugar

1 cup cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 heaped tsp ground cinnamon
5 tbsp castor sugar
80g Stork Bake + 1 tsp to butter/grease pie dish
2 tbsp chopped cashew nuts

Butter/grease a medium sized pie dish with Stork Bake. Place the sliced apple and pineapple pieces in the pie dish to cover the base of the pie dish. Because of all the lovely crumble that will be on top I decided not to make a crust. Evenly pour the golden syrup and then the caramel sugar over the fruit base.
In a food processor mix together the cake flour, baking powder, cinnamon, sugar, cashew nuts and Stork Bake until a crumb-like texture forms. Cover the fruit base with the crumb mixture.
Bake at a 190*C for 40-45 minutes until the crumbs are light brown and the caramel syrup is bubbling on the sides of the pie dish.
*Serving suggestion: Preferably serve warm with custard, whipped cream or ice cream. My dad loves his Crumble and Custard mix!
