This Apple Pear Crumble is the perfect dessert for the cooler Fall nights. Crunchy, sweet and filled with crisp apples and sweet pears, it's just perfect served with ice cream or custard!

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!
