Pear and Apple Crumble

Published February 8, 2014 by itsachunglife

 Such a great way to use up soft pears and floury apples.  Semi healthy too, since each ramekin contains one serving of fruit and you could absolutely get away with not adding any sugar to the fruit mixture.

Ingredients:

3 pears

1 apple

3 T lemon juice

1/4 C sugar (use less or leave out if you prefer it a bit tart)

1/4 C cranberries

Pinch nutmeg

Pinch cinnamon

Crumble:

1/3 C flour

1/4 C + 2 t brown sugar

pinch salt

1/2 t cinnamon

pinch nutmeg

2 T butter

1.5 T cold water

1/2 C rolled oats

Directions:

1. Pre heat oven to 190 C bake.

2. Peel and cut fruit into 1 cm chunks.

3. Toss fruit into a bowl with lemon juice, sugar, cranberries, nutmeg and cinnamon.

4. Divide evenly between 4 ramekins, or put all in large baking dish.

5. In another bowl combine flour, butter, sugar, salt and spices until all the butter is rubbed in.

6. Add in rolled oats, then add water to mix.  If like me you enjoy a crumble with big biscuity chunks add a bit more water so the mixture forms small dough like balls.  If too wet, add more rolled oats.

7. Spoon crumble on top of fruit and bake at 190 C for 40-45 minutes.  It’s ok to be full to the brim, as it will reduce as it cooks.

8. Serve warm with ice cream. Enjoy 🙂Image

My next culinary goal…..well I”ve really been craving Chelsea Buns, and it seems like the Australians don’t know what they are.  So I either give it go, or wait until I go back home to NZ for the sweet delight.  It’s just tough though…I have to make bread :/
