Method

1. Preheat oven to 175°C.

2. To make the filling: Prepare your apples and rhubarb and pop into the large mixing bowl. Add all the other filling ingredients and mix through using your hands. Set aside.

3. To make the crumble: In the medium mixing bowl, mix through the crumble ingredients (except walnuts) using your hands. Ensure the crumble is thoroughly combined, it should have a wet, crumbly consistency. Stir through the walnuts. 

4. Pour your fruit mixture into the baking dish, top with crumble and pop into the oven for 40 minutes. The top should be slightly brown and crispy.

5. Serve with an extra lug of maple syrup and your choice of ice cream (I served mine with truffle ice cream).

Storage: in an airtight container for up to a week.
