This is a lovely sweet version of apple crumble, perfectly gooey and fantastic with thick whipped cream. The crumble topping is a little cakey and therefore denser than normal apple crumbles, but still delicious.
175g dark brown sugar
125g plain flour
100g porridge oats
75g pecan nuts
4 tbsp. maple syrup
A pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4.
Peel, core and chop the apples. Place them into a large baking dish.
Cream the dark sugar into the butter.
Sift in the flour and stir well. Add the oats and salt, stir well, and then fold in the nuts.
Spread this mixture over the apples.
Drizzle the maple syrup over the top.
Cook for around 50 minutes or until the apples are soft – use a clean skewer to check.
