Recipe: Apple Maple Crumble

This is the first thing I’ve actually made in my new apartment, and I’m happy to say it turned out great and delicious (much to my surprise).

I hadn’t tried this particular recipe for Apple Crumble before but as all of my cookbooks are hiding in a box somewhere I had to improvise. I found the recipe from, it came with mixed reviews and some alterations suggested. I like the sound of it so I followed the recipe more or less exactly.


  • 5 Apples (buy here or here)
  • 2/3 cup of maple syrup
  • ½ cup of butter
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • ¾  cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • ¾ cup of rolled oats


1)   Preheat oven to 375° F.

2. Have your baking pan and your recipe handy.
3. Peel Apples.
4. Cut and core the apples and then place apples in the baking dish.



5. Pour maple syrup over the apples (don't forget to measure!).
6. In a bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Stir in the flour, salt and oats.
Well mixed!
7. Sprinkle oat mixture over apples.
8. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes, until golden and bubbly and apples are tender.
