Apple Crumble is just so delicious ... But: Can you make money with it? Honestly: I’ve no idea yet, but again: this crumble is delicious .. ;-)
"Can you make money with it??" People often ask me this question, when I’m talking about my Food Blog. It’s a great topic and an icebreaker for conversation - people mostly like to hear nice stories about food, photography and healthy nutrition. But this is not a real hot topic, to be honest. You can furthermore receive real sparkling interest around the topic "Can you make money with your Food Blog?" I know, that this is possible – at least theoretically. In practical terms, however, not a single penny has curled up on my bank account yet. Thinking about all this, I mostly answer this question with: "Sure you can," and I tell my conversational partners about my recent Amazon partnership and cooperation with Affilinet and my future plans for my own cookbook and maybe even cooking classes. Then I mostly change topic, as not to overtax my listeners, who maybe had wished a more concrete answer to this simple question.
But I don’t want to complain here, because until now I've really just cooked, photographed, texted, and eaten and kept myself busy with blogging and a healthy diet. Without an E-Shop, Advertisements or anything like that, you cannot make money. I would have known this even without the expensive online marketing seminar, which I attended a few years ago. That's why I'm all the more strained whether this will really work. Because in hopefully a few days or at most some weeks my Amazon shop and my Affilinet advertising partnership will go online ... And I'm looking forward now with anticipation, if someone will buy his / her blender, cooking utensils, seed devices or superfood ingredients via this blog. Each Click will be money for me… So if you have plans to buy some of this stuff, I really would be happy if you could do that via my Shop-Link :) …
But for now I want to return your attention back to the food and my dish of the day: The Apple Crumble - raw apples with nuts, dates, and a wonderfully creamy maple cashew sauce! My guests (the Norwegian relatives plus my always hungry Austro-Swedish invited extended family) loved it! With Vanilla Ice Cream the Crumble even tasted twice as good, they said.
The court is relatively quick to prepare and is also suitable for beginners - and you can surprise your party guests with something new - an alternative for desert, which everyone will love.
Apple Crumble with Maplesyrup-Cashew-Cream
Inspired by Judita Wignall Going Raw: Everything You Need to Start Your Own Raw Food Diet and Lifestyle Revolution at Home
1 cup walnuts, coarsely ground
¼ cup palm sugar or beet sugar
¼ cup dates, chopped
¼ cup raisins
1 pinch of salt
½ cup oatmeal (alternatively: crushed almonds)
2 tablespoons agave nectar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
¼ teaspoon gingerbread spice (or cinnamon, clove, cardamom mix)
3 whole apples (unpeeled, thinly sliced)
Maple syrup cream:
1 cup soaked cashews (2 hours)
½ cup maple syrup
¼ cup water
½ teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla powder
For the Date Nut Mix chop dates and walnuts separately in a blender, then mix both with raisins, sugar and oatmeal and put the mixture aside. For the filling mix agave nectar, lemon juice and gingerbread spices and marinate the finely chopped apples in it.
For the cream put syrop and water in the blender and put only a part of the cashews in it, and mix until you get a fine, smooth cream, then add the remaining cashews successively until you get an optimal smooth cream, if necessary, add a little more water or maple syrip. The marinated apples are served in a bed of date-nut mixture and a few teaspoons of it to sprinkle above and maple syrup cream as a sauce.
Tip: vanilla ice cream is a super fit to the crumble! For raw food purists: The ice can also be a raw food ice cream :)!
