Apple Filling instructions:
Preheat oven to 350℉.
In a saucepan, coat the apples in the arrowroot starch.
Place on stove top and set to medium heat. After one minute, mix in cinnamon and sugar, toss again until evenly coated, let cook for another minute.
Pour water over the entire thing, mix and let simmer WITH a lid on.
After cooking for 5 minutes, take off heat, mix in lemon juice and set aside while preparing the dough.
For the Crumbs:
Combine oil, cashew butter and syrup in a small bowl with the back of a fork.
Add in flours and cinnamon and continue to combine with back of fork.
This will be dry and crumbly, but will form together if squeezed in the palm of your hand.
For the Cake
Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl, set aside.
Whisk together all wet ingredients in a separate small bowl and pour into dry ingredients.
Whisk together until all lumps are gone and a smooth batter is achieved
Grease the bottom and sides of an 8” skillet(an 8” cake pan will work too) with coconut oil.
Pour haf the cake batter into skillet and spread so it fills the pan to its sides.
Pour all of the apple mixture on top of that, making an even layer that covers the cake batter.
Pour the rest of the cake batter over the apple layer, filling the skillet to the top.
Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the whole top, breaking the pieces up with your fingers as you sprinkle.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
*Optional* Drizzle with roasted coconut butter for an extra boost of flavor!
