This delicious raspberry apple crisp is easy to make and full of flavor from fresh ginger and cardamom. The topping is a buttery and crunchy hazelnut streusel.
I’m not a big fan of raw fruit but I am a huge fan of fruit crisps. What an incredible transformation they are. You start with hard, boring apples and tart raspberries and end with a juicy, crispy, warm, sweet and tasty dish of deliciousness.
For this raspberry apple crisp I flavored the fruit with freshly grated ginger and ground cardamom and topped it with a hazelnut streusel. The nuts add great flavor and crunch, so don’t be tempted to skip them. :)
How to make raspberry apple crisp:
You start by tossing your apples and raspberries with the fresh ginger and ground cardamom in a bowl along with a bit of corn starch and brown sugar. (The corn starch will bind the juices so that things don’t get too runny down the road).
Next you transfer the fruit into your baking pan(s). You can use one large pan or individual pans like I did here, whatever works for you.
Now to the topping: you add rolled oats, all-purpose flour, chopped hazelnuts, brown sugar and a smidgen of salt to a bowl. Next, you grab your pastry cutter and cut in the butter, then sprinkle the topping over the fruit and bake until it is golden-brown (about one hour).
I suggest you serve the crisp warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream (or indeed both. I mean, why not!)
RECIPE TIP: You can make both the fruit mix and the streusel in advance and then keep them in the fridge for several hours.
