  • 3 apples large, peeled, cored and sliced thinly
  • 2 pears large, peeled, cored and sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4-1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup rolled oats not quick cook
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter cold and cubed
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350F/180C and spray an 13 x 9 inch pan with cooking spray.
  • Place apples, pears, cornstarch, lemon juice, brown sugar and cinnamon into a medium sized bowl and toss until all the fruit is coated in the cornstarch/sugar mixture. Leave to one side.
  • Place the oats, sugar, flour and salt into a medium sized bowl and stir briefly to combine.
  • 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!
  • Tip the fruit mixture into your prepared pan and smooth into a level layer with a spatula/wooden spoon.
  • Sprinkle the crumble topping all over the fruit into as even a layer as you can get it.
  • Place in the oven for 35-45 minutes, until the fruit filling is bubbling and the top is golden brown and firm to the touch.
  • Leave to cool for 20 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with ice cream and enjoy!
