Baked Apple & Pumpkin Seed Crumble

Well, it’s finally Autumn now! I’ve also finally finished writing up this recipe, which I know a few of you have eagerly been waiting for. So here it is! I especially love cooking and baking with seasonal food, and this recipe is a new favourite to include two lovely Autumn foods: apples & pumpkin seeds!

Fun fact: the Hungarian word for apple is alma, and pumpkin seed is tökmag. And tökmag is a common pet-name for little kids. So you’re referring to them as a little “pumpkin seed”. Isn’t that pretty much the cutest thing you’ve ever heard!?

Anyways. On to the recipe. I hope you enjoy it! My own little tökmag‘s certainly did.
