This is a simplified version of a pear crumble. You will find all the ingredients for the streusel topping in your pantry. Pears are great but you could also use apples, or even canned peaches or apricots. If you have it, serve with vanilla ice-cream.
4-5 (about 850g) just-soft pears, peeled, cored and diced
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp plain flour
130g (1 cup) plain flour
80g (½ cup) brown sugar
½ tsp sea salt
85g (6 tbsp) butter, melted
Brown sugar $0.35
1. Preheat oven to 190C fan-forced (210C conventional).
2. To make the streusel topping, whisk together the flour, sugar and salt. Add the butter and stir to combine, until the mixture resembles coarse meal with some large pieces remaining. Set aside.
3. Place the pears into an ovenproof dish, add the sugar and flour, and toss to coat. Scatter the streusel topping over the pears. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the topping is golden, and the pears are tender. Serve warm or at room temperature.
