Pear and Raspberry Almond Crumble

Pear and Raspberry Crumble! YUM!
Ofcourse it would be delicious! My friend Lin had made it the week before, and since I was conveniently shopping at the greengrocers with her when she told me, I immediately bought 3 big beurre bosc pears, those brown skinned ones that are so easy to cook with.

I peeled and cored them and stewed them with a little orange juice and a sprinkle of brown sugar. Then into the pie plate and topped with frozen raspberries.

I made the crumble topping by melting 50g of butter (pyrex jug in the microwave) and adding in:
1/2 cup flaked almonds
1/4 cup plain flour
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp freshly ground cinnamon
Mixed up and sprinkled over the top and then into a moderate oven until golden ~ I let mine go for twenty minutes.

And then this!

Fruit based, seasonal (sneaking in the raspberries), delicious dessert!
As I said at the start: YUM!


  1. Oh my God ! It's mouth watering, Joy ! It's a pity we can't find raspberries here :( Is there another fruit that can replace it in this delicious recipe ? Well, we're having strawberries at this time, here... What's your suggestion ?

    Have a gorgeous day !!!


  2. Love the streusel treat, not to mention it's filled with raspberries!

  3. Joy, that's YUM indeed.

  5. Oh good grief it looks fantastic! Going to try this when mother-in-law comes to visit

  6. Hi everyone!
    Claudia I can't think of a good substitution (so sad you don't have raspberries!) but any berry would be good, and I think pear and plum would make a lovely crumble! Cheers!
    I bet your MIL will love it Pol!
    Thankyou to you Lucy! I'm good!
