|10 g||dry active yeast|
|125 ml||whole milk (lukewarm)|
|650 g||all-purpose flour (divided)|
|175 g||sugar (divided)|
|190 g||butter (cubed and divided, plus more for greasing)|
|1||lemon (juice and zest)|
|1 tsp||ground cinnamon|
|½ tsp||ground nutmeg|
|40 g||ground almonds|
|1½ tsp||vanilla sugar|
|flour for dusting|
Combine yeast and milk in bowl of stand mixer, then cover and set aside until it turns foamy, approx. 10 min.
Add eggs and salt, as well as some of the flour, sugar, and butter, and mix until dough forms. Cover and let rise for approx. 45 min., or until almost doubled in size.
Meanwhile, peel, core, and slice apples.
Toss apples with lemon juice and zest and set aside.
Mix together cinnamon, nutmeg, and some of the sugar. Grease a large rectangular baking dish with butter. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface, knead a couple of times until smooth, and roll out to fit the baking pan.
Transfer dough to baking dish and sprinkle with almonds. Spread apple slices on top, then sprinkle with sugar mixture. For the crumble, combine flour, remaining sugar, butter, salt, and vanilla sugar and use your fingers to combine into large crumbs. Sprinkle crumble over apples and bake at 180°C/350°F for approx. 45 min. Remove from oven and let cool. Cut into squares and enjoy!
