Canadian apple crumble

Canadian apple crumble
The classic apple crumble is given a Canadian twist here: rolled oats in the topping and a drizzle of maple syrup over the apples.

These two small changes make the flavour very distinctive and very, well... Canadian.

Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 2 min.
Canadian apple crumble
Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).

Spread 75 g rolled oats on a sheet of cooking parchment laid on a baking sheet.

Stage 2 - 15 min.

Toast the oats in the oven for 15 minutes.

Leave to cool.

Stage 3 - 5 min.
Canadian apple crumble

Stage 7 - 10 min.
Canadian apple crumble
Peel 1 kg apple and slice.

Spread evenly in the dish.

Stage 8 - 1 min.
Canadian apple crumble
Drizzle maple syrup over the apples.

Stage 9 - 3 min.

Spread the crumble topping over the apples.

Stage 10 - 40 min.
Canadian apple crumble
Bake for about 40 minutes.
As the crumble is already plenty sweet enough, with the addition of maple syrup, you can easily reduce the amount of sugar without drastically affecting the result.

Likewise, it's best to choose a fairly tart variety of apple: a good cooking apple, like Bramley, or one of the more acidic eaters, such as Cox or a russet.
A day or two in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
Home made.
