Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180C or 350F (Mark 4).

Step 2

Combine all the topping ingredients in a large bowl, including the optional dried figs or apricots, and stir until well mixed.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, combine all the ingredients for the apple filling except the sliced apples.

Step 4

Distribute the apple filling evenly on the bottom of an ovenproof dish, I prefer porcelain dishes and have found that no greasing is needed. Spoon the topping over the apples.

Step 5

A lot of cinnamon and maple syrup will be left in the bowl, so add ½ cup of water filtered water to the bowl and let the water soak it all up, then pour this mixture evenly over the pie.

Step 6

Finally, arrange the sliced apples on top, drizzle the last tbsp of maple syrup over it all and bake for 30-40 minutes.
