This crumble tastes positively chometzdik! No, it is not low-fat (which is what I usually aim to do), but it
- Fruit Mixture
- 7 apples, peeled and sliced -
- ½ cup sugar -
- 2 tsp lemon juice -
- ½ tsp cinnamon -
- 1 small box strawberries, cleaned and sliced (or use frozen) -
- 2 ½ cups potato starch -
- ¾ cup sugar -
- 1 egg -
- 1 cup oil -
- 100 grams (3 ½ -4 oz) ground nuts -
- 1 vanilla sugar, opt. -
Combine apples, sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon. Put on bottom of a 9x13 pan or 2 9” round pans. Top with sliced strawberries. With a fork, mix together the crumb ingredients: potato starch, sugar, egg, oil and nuts. Crumble with your fingers and place on top of strawberries. Bake uncovered at 350F/180C for 1 – 1 ½ hours, or until done. It’s a good idea to put a piece of foil under the pan(s) to catch crumbs that might fall and make a mess.
Note: You can prepare this kugel in advance and freeze. Let it defrost slightly at room temperature, and then warm in the oven at a low temperature. Once it's defrosted, turn the oven to a higher temperature until completely heated through.
Tip: In order to reduce the calories and fat, I tried using half oil and half applesauce. The results were satisfactory (it was all eaten!) but, honestly, the kugel did not have the same texture as with the all-oil version.
