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.

Remarks

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.
