150 gms flour
80 gms + 2 tablespoon butter
60 gms cane sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 yolk (medium size)
900 gms apples
2 tablespoon lemon juice
80 gms California walnuts
50 gms raisins
1 packet vanilla sugar


  1. Knead the flour, 80 gms butter, sugar, cinnamon and the yolk with the hand mixer and then with fingertips until it is crumbled dough. Put it into the fridge for about 20 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, peel the apples, quarter and core them. Then cut the quarters lengthways into halves and then cut again into smaller pieces. Sprinkle them with lemon juice. Chop the walnuts coarsely. Melt 2 tablespoon butter in a pot. Add walnuts, apple pieces, raisins and the vanilla sugar and braise lightly for 2-3 minutes at middle heat while stirring occasionally.
  3. Fill the apple mix into a pan. Put the crumbles on top. Bake it in the pre-heated oven (electric oven: 175 °C/ convection oven: 150 °C/ gas oven: see manufacturer) for approx. 35 minutes. Put it on a cooling rack afterwards.
  4. Serve cold or warm.
