As the evenings draw in and the weather gets cooler, I crave nothing more than a warm, comforting dessert. Soft fruit and cinnamon with a delicious crunchy top… there’s just nothing better! That is, until you add the sweet contrast of the cold ice cream – I simply can’t get enough!

I mean, I adore apple crumble, but one night I started brain storming how I could make it even better.

“Why not add pears?” I asked myself.

And so I did.

And I am SO glad I did.

This Pear Apple Crumble is AMAZING!

I used different types of apples and pears; soft, sweet pears and crunchy, juicy apples. This way you could really taste the two fruits individually.

With brown sugar and cinnamon in the mix, the result is sweet, juicy and a little spicy. I really think the cinnamon is the cherry on the top of this whole dessert; it just adds a beautiful warmth to the crumble.

The topping is a buttery oat and flour crumble that literally makes this dessert pure heaven on a plate!

And if a delicious dessert isn’t enough to strike your curiosity, let me just tell you that it is also SUPER simple to make@ Mix the fruit filling and leave it to one side while you make the topping.  Put it all in a greased pan and bake it.

Which brings me to the hardest part of this whole process – waiting until its done to eat it! The amazing smell it gives off while baking made my mouth water and I could not wait for it to be ready!

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4-1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup rolled oats, not quick cook

  3. Place the oats, sugar, flour and salt into a medium sized bowl and stir briefly to combine.
  4. Add in the cubes of butter and vanilla, then rub between your fingers until you have a coarse breadcrumb texture. Some larger lumps the size of peas is great; adds texture to the crumble!
