    Serves: 4


    300g blackberries
    2 ripe pears, peeled, cored and roughly chopped

    3 tbsp light brown muscovado sugar
    150g Bacheldre Watermill Stoneground Spelt Flour

    3. Place the dish on a baking tray and cook for 35-40 minutes until the topping is golden brown, the blackberries are just releasing their juices and the pears are tender. Allow to stand for about 10 minutes before serving with clotted cream.

    Cook's tips

    Spelt flour contains a more digestible form of gluten than standard flour, and has a lovely nutty texture. Replace with standard plain flour if you prefer.

    Drinks recommendation

    This crunchy crumble demands a chilled fruity red wine.
