Perfect Pear And Raspberry Oaty Crumble Recipe From Ella's Kitchen

  • Serves: 4
  • Preparation time: 60 minutes

Method

Making crumble is lots of fun for little hands so let your toddler get involved with the preparation. This scrummy pud will definitely round off a family Sunday roast.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4.
  2. If you’re using fresh pears, put the sugar into a large saucepan with 1 litre of water. Place the pears in the pan. Bring up to a simmer and poach the pears for 20 minutes, until cooked through and tender. Drain them and allow to sit until they are cool enough to handle, then cut in half and remove the cores.
  3. Slice the poached pears lengthways. Place them in a 1 litre ovenproof dish. If you’re using canned pears, roughly chop them and put them into the dish. Add the raspberries and toss everything together.
  4. To make the topping, put the flour into a bowl and add the butter. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and the porridge oats, and the hazelnuts (if using).
  5. Spread the crumble mixture onto a baking sheet and place it in the oven for 10 minutes. This will give you a lovely crunchy crumble topping. Remove it from the oven and sprinkle it over the fruit. Cook the crumble for 25minutes until golden. Serve warm with custard, vanilla ice cream of crème fraîche.
