Preparation for the base of the light apple crumble
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl: the two flours, the salt and the baking soda. In another recipient, melt the coconut oil with the honey. Knead the dough gradually adding the plant-based milk (coconut, rice or oatmeal) until the blend acquires a flexible consistency that can easily be extended. When it is ready, stretch it with your hand at the base of a rectangular cake mould previously smeared with butter and flour so that the cake does not stick to it. Put it in the oven and bake it at 180ºC for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, you can prepare the stuffing and the crumble.
Apple filling – middle layer
Peel the apples, cut them into pieces, and put them in a saucepan with two or three tablespoons of brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cover everything with water, and cook over medium heat until the apples are soft – can check them with a fork -. Remove the pan from the fire.
Crumble – top layer
Crush the almonds in a mortar or with a food processor if you are not patient enough. Add the buckwheat, the oatmeal flakes, the flax seeds, a drizzle of olive oil and your favourite Huaora mix. If you want, you can also add some type of sweetener such as honey, stevia, maple or agave syrup. Then you have to mix the dough. Using a spoon for it is OK, but it gets better and it is much more fun to do it with your hands. Do not worry if the crumble is a little loose at the end. That is the way should be.
Prepare the 3 levels of the cake
After the 15 minutes, more or less, you have removed the base of the cake from the oven. Then pour the cooked apples evenly with the help of a spoon. Afterwards, smear the crumble on top without crushing it too much and trying cover the entire apple layer uniformly.
Heat the oven to 180º, put the cake in and leave it baking for about 40 minutes. Remove it when you see that the top is toasted and crispy.
