For me crumbles are the ultimate comfort food. This pumpkin spiced apple and pear crumble has all the autumnal feels.
2 large bramley apples
1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon butter
225g plain flour
100g butter – diced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
To scatter over
1 tablespoon oats
1 tablespoon soft brown sugar
Preheat oven to 190c / 170c fan
Peel, core and slice your apples and pears.
Add to a large pan with your tablespoon of butter and spices. Squeeze over your lemon.
Simmer gently over a low heat for 5 minutes or so to soften, stirring all the while.
Transfer to your baking dish.
In a separate large mixing bowl, mix together your flour, diced butter and brown sugar. Rub together to form a crumbly mixture. When it’s suitably crumbly scatter it all over your fruit.
Press down slightly and scatter over your oats and tablespoon of brown sugar.
Bake in the centre of the oven for approximately 25 minutes.
Serve exactly how you desire.
