  • 90g plain flour
  • 40g buckwheat flour
  • 20g jumbo oats
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 75g demerara sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 150g unsalted butter, 50g finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp fine salt
  • 300g apples (such as cox or braeburn)
  • 300g pears
  • 45g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod, seeds only
  • ½ lemon, zest and juice
  • ice cream, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C, gas mark 4. Put the flours, oats, almonds, demerara sugar, cinnamon, 100g butter and the salt in a food processor and pulse together until just combined. Peel and core the apples and pears, then cut both into thin wedges. Put the fruit, muscovado sugar, vanilla seeds, 50g finely chopped butter and lemon zest and juice in a bowl; mix with your hands until the fruit is evenly coated.

  2. Transfer to a rectangular ovenproof dish about 27cm x 17cm, then cover with the crumble mixture. It shouldn’t be too neat, as an uneven surface will result in more colour and crunch. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden. Serve while still hot, with a scoop of ice cream.
