The first snow of the season has arrived in Iceland! Yay! I’m so happy!
The snow brightens up the dark evenings here so it makes the day longer and brighter. And it’s so cosy to cuddle up inside with a big bowl of something warming, like this delicious layered apple pie pudding. I woke up pretty early today at 6:30 am and went to a yoga class with my mom. It’s was so peaceful to be up this early, everything so white and bright and everyone sleeping.
Best feeling in the world: Being the first person to walk in the snow and hearing the squeaky, crunchy sound.
When I came home I knew instantly that I wanted something cosy and warming to eat, filled with warming spices and carbs to fill me up. So I made this incredibly delicious Layered Apple Pie Crumble Pudding. It’s warming and spicy, it has crunch and creamyness and reminds me of an apple pie. First I made a crumble with apples and figs and spices and then I layered it with the simple pudding. Ginger and cinnamon give it a spicy kick so it will warm you up instantly in the cold winter weather. I sprinkled some frozen raspberries on top and they give a little boost of freshness to it so I highly recommend that 😉 .
Apple pie crumble:
3-4 very small organic apples, or fewer bigger ones
5 dried figs, chopped in small pieces
1 tsp cinnamon
4 ripe bananas
1 small apple
Handful of frozen mango (for texture, optional)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cm piece of ginger, chopped
Start with putting your crumble ingredients chopped in your blender and pulse a few times, until it looks crumbly. Don’t over process or it becomes a mushy mush. We don’t want a mushy mush. You will want it to have some crunch to it, but still in small enough pieces so you won’t have to chew it too much.
Put the crumble aside and blend all your pudding ingredients to a very smooth consistency.
Now start layering half of your crumble in the bottom of your bowl, or jar, or glass or whatever. Then add half of your pudding, the other half of your crumble and fill it up with the remaining of the pudding. Sprinkle some raspberries on top, or blueberries, or bananas, or more crumble if you have any left.
Hmm mulberries would also be delicious with this! I’m going add some next time I make it. Which is going to be very soon I think, because it’s that good! 🙂
Have a great weekend!
