    Blackberry, pear & pecan crumble

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 6


    125g plain flour
    50g porridge oats
    65g light brown soft sugar, plus 1 tbsp
    ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
    100g unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
    50g pecans, roughly chopped
    4 Conference pears, peeled, cored and cut into 2-3cm chunks
    150g blackberries
    ½ lemon, juice


    1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, oats, 65g sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Use your fingers to rub in the butter to make a clumpy crumble, then stir
    in the pecans.

    2. Toss together the pears, blackberries, lemon juice and remaining 1 tbsp sugar in a 2L ovenproof dish.

    3. Use the back of a spoon to lightly flatten the fruit to make as even a surface as possible. Scatter the crumble over the top, piling it ever-so slightly higher in the centre.

    4. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden on top and piping hot throughout. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving with cream,
    ice cream or custard.
