Pear & Apple Crumble

04 Jun, 2024

Warm up your winter with this delicious pear and apple crumble. Juicy pears and crisp apples form the perfect combination for this tasty dessert.

What You’ll Need

∙ 2 ripe pears, peeled, cored and sliced

∙ 2 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced

∙ 1 tablespoon brown sugar

∙ 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

∙ 2 cups flour

∙ 1 cup butter

∙ 1 cup caster sugar

∙ Pinch of salt

∙ Vanilla ice cream or custard, to serve (optional)


Preheat oven to 180°C.

In a large bowl, combine the sliced pears, apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Toss gently until the fruits are evenly coated.

In another bowl, mix the flour, butter and a pinch of salt. Using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs, then add caster sugar to create the crumble topping.

Pour the fruit mixture into a greased baking dish, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle the crumble topping over the fruit, covering it completely. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown.

Once baked, remove the crumble from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. We recommend serving warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or custard.
