Apple & Pear Crumble

Apple & Pear Crumble
My search for something new to make for Seasonal Sunday began with pear recipes. I saw some great pears down at our local fresh produce grocer, Todderellos, and picked a few up ready to transform. Having made quite a few apple crumbles in my time, when I came across a recipe on Taste that combined two seasonal favourites – apple and pear – I thought it was a great opportunity to extend an old classic.

This crumble turned out to be a real winner, both hot immediately after cooking, and cold the following day.
  • Filling
  • 3 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 3 William pears, peeled, cored and sliced
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup golden syrup (the original recipe called for maple syrup)
  • 1/3 cup raisins (you could substitute sultanas or cranberries)
  • Topping
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup plain flour
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 80 g (5 1/2 Tbsp) butter, chilled and cubed
Preheat oven to 200C (400F).
  1. Place apple, pear, cinnamon, syrup and raisins in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook covered for 5 minutes stirring once, until apples are just on tender.
  2. Spoon mixture into a 6-cup capacity ovenproof dish and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the oats, flour and sugar. Rub the butter into the oat mixture until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Sprinkle over fruit mixture, covering evenly.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling. Stand for 5 minutes prior to serving. Crumble is great by itself, or with cream, ice cream or both!
Once cooled, crumble can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days.[br][b]Vegetarian | Nut-Free | Soy-Free[/b]
