Individual Apple and Peanut Butter Crumbles
Last weekend, when I was at the farmer's market, I could practically smell the apples a block away. So many fresh ripe varieties to choose from and all sweet and perfect. I bought some just for eating as snacks with peanut butter but I also wanted to make an apple crumb cake.
Once I got home, though, I wasn't really in a cake mood. I still wanted the crumb topping because, let's face it, that's the best part. But I was feeling like doing something more simple with the apples. Pie filling is simple because it's really just apples, sugar and lemon juice so I decided to combine the pie bottom with the cake top.
I added the sweet, lemony diced apples into little baking pots and topped them with crumb topping. And since I already had an apple and peanut butter combo in mind, I added some of the peanut butter to the crumb dough and then made a peanut butter glaze to pour over the top.
In the oven, some of the crumb topping melted down into the apples, giving them a slightly cake like texture anyway so this recipe was a win-win. And definitely make extra of the peanut butter sauce because you will want to pour it on everything. Enjoy!
