Our answer

Nigella's Blackberry And Apple Kuchen (from NIGELLA BITES) has a two-layer topping. There is a layer of fruit and then a layer of streusel-like crumble.

The crumble is made with self-raising flour and ground almonds (almond meal), as this helps to give a slight lift to the crumble. It is possible to use plain (all-purpose) flour instead, just mix it with ½ teaspoon of baking powder. Put the flour and baking powder together in a bowl and whisk with a fork to combine, before adding the almonds and cinnamon and continuing with the recipe.
