I made this recipe a few weekends ago as a simple dessert on a sunday night. I love crumbles - so quick and easy to make and they always taste so so good...proper comfort food for me!
Pear and Raspberry Crumble Recipe
3 large slightly unripe pears - 700g cored and thickly sliced
300g fresh raspberries (or blackberries..whichever you prefer)
60g caster sugar
For the crumble
100g cold butter, diced
225g plain flour
50g caster sugar
Preheat the over to 180C, fan 160C, gas 4. To make the crumble topping, in a large bowl, rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips, or pulse them together in a food processor, until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.
Butter a 1.2 litre oven proof dish and arrange the pears in it. Sprinkle over the raspberries and then the sugar.
With a large spoon, scatter the crumble mixture evenly over the fruit. Bake in the centre of the oven for about an hour. The crumble should just be turning golden and there will be some raspberry juice bubbling up around the sides.
Sprinkle with a little extra sugar and serve with ice cream like me...or custard or cream...all equally yummy!
