Apple, pecan and maple crumble





120g plain flour

80g (⅓ cup) unrefined cane sugar

100g cold salted butter, cubed

100g (1 cup) pecans


1.5 kg apples

2 knobs of butter

120ml maple syrup


Preheat the oven to 180C.

Put the flour, sugar and butter into a bowl.

Rub the butter into the other ingredients rapidly with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Incorporate the pecans and chill.

Peel and core the apples, then cut into large cubes.

Melt the butter in a frying pan with the maple syrup.

Add the apples and allow them to caramelise for 10 minutes.

Arrange the caramelised apples in a gratin dish and sprinkle with the crumble.

Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, until the crumble is golden.

Ideal serving temperature: warm.

Serve with whipped cream and maple syrup.
