  • 650 g sweet potatoes (about 5)
  • 690 g tart apples (such as Granny Smith, about 5)
  • 316 g maple syrup (1 cup)
  • 57 g butter (unsalted) (1/4 cup)
  • Salt (Table) (to taste)
  • 110 g buttered bread crumbs (1 cup)


Preheat the oven to 400F/200C/Gas 6.  Butter a baking dish; set aside.

Boil the sweet potatoes in their skins in salted water.  When cool enough to handle, peel and slice them.

Pare and slice the apples and place in a saucepan with the maple syrup.  Add butter and a pinch of salt; cook until apples are tender.

Place half the sweet potatoes in the baking dish; pour half the apple mixutre over the potatoes.  Repeat the layers.  Top generously with crumbs.

Bake until heated through and topping is brown, 20 - 30 minutes.


Note from review: These might be a bit sweet, consider cutting back maple syrup amount.
