Chef Ming Tsais Five Spice Apple Crumble


Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 35 minutes

Serve: 4 people


  • ¾ cup nuts (walnuts, pecans) roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon five-spice powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoon melted unsalted butter
  • 4 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped into 1/2-inch dice
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon five spice powder


1) Make the “crumble:” In a medium bowl, combine nuts, flour, oats, brown sugar, five-spice powder and salt. Stir to combine. Add the melted butter to the bowl and mix. Add the crumble mixture to the ActiFry. 2) Set the timer to 20 minutes and start the ActiFry. Transfer the finished crumble to a sheet tray. Be careful as the mixture is very hot because of the caramelized sugar. Set aside to cool. 3) In a bowl, combine the diced apples, lemon juice, brown sugar and five-spice powder. Add the apple mixture to the ActiFry, set the timer for 12 minutes and start the ActiFry. 4) After the apples have cooked for 12 minutes, add 1 1/2 cups crumble mixture to the apple mixture. Allow the mixture to cook until warmed through and moist, about 3 additional minutes. 5) Remove from the ActiFry. Serve on its own or with ice cream and a sprig of mint. Use additional crumble for garnish. Photo/Nina Gallant
