Pear Crumble


 Pear Crumble. The traditional crumble recipe using pears instead of the usual apples

Pear Crumble
Serves: 4-6


  • Crumble Topping
  • 225g Plain or wholewheat flour
  • 75g Butter (room temperature)
  • 75g - 110g Soft Brown Sugar (to taste)
  • Filling
  • 900g Ripe Pears (Comice)
  • 25g Soft Brown Sugar





Pre-heat the oven to gas 4 or 180 centigrade.

Peel and quarter the pears. Remove the core and pips and place them into a caserole dish (1.75 litre) and spinkle over the sugar then prepare the crumble topping.
Put the flour into a large mixing bowl and add the butter. Rub the flour and butter together until it looks crumbly and the butter has been evenly dispersed through the flour. Add the sugar and mix together to ensure that everything is combined.

Sprinkle the crumble topping evenly over the top of the pears using a fork to even out the distribution but don't press it down.

Cook in the oven for 30 - 40 minutes until lightly golden brown.
