"Added ground ginger to the Crumble mix"

Description (Some HTML is OK)

Although your kitchen will swelter with the heat from the oven, I promise you the reward will be worth the sweat. Make sure you don't eat too much at supper, as seconds is a must with this dish. Why not just have it for supper... saves time. Serve with ice cream.


Makes 6 servings

  • Crumble
  • ¾ cup plain flour
  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup unrefined brown sugar
  • 1-2 tsp ground ginger (depends how spicy you like it)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cubed at room temperature
  • Filling
  • 10 pears peeled and cut into chunks
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preparation (Some HTML is OK)

Preheat your oven to 180C. Place the flour, brown sugar & ground ginger in a large bowl and mix it together. Taking a few cubes of butter at a time rub into the flour mixture, keep rubbing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Place the fruit in a large bowl and sprinkle over the white sugar. Stir well being careful not to break up the fruit. Butter a 9 X 13 inch ovenproof dish. Spoon the fruit mixture into the bottom, then sprinkle the crumble mixture on top. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the crumble is browned and the fruit mixture bubbling.

Just before digging in. You can't imagine the level of restraint.
