Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. * Preheat your oven to 190ºC. Generously butter an ovenproof dish or baking tin.
  2. * Peel and slice your pears (or apples) and place them in the dish. Mix in the berries and scatter half the caster sugar over the fruit.
  3. * Mix together the flour, brown sugar and the other half of the caster sugar in a bowl. Add the butter and vanilla and rub them in with your fingertips, working until the mixture is fine and grainy. If you're feeling healthy you can add an oaty topping!
  4. * Scatter the topping over the fruit to cover it completely in a good thick layer. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the top is nicely golden and some berry juice has oozed up a bit over the crust and darkened it here and there.
  5. * Let it cool down a touch and then serve warm with whipped thick or clotted cream, a jug of custard or vanilla ice cream. Serves 6. I had custard. Yum.
  6. You can use any ripe sweet fruit you like for this. You can mix some chopped shelled walnuts (about 30g) through the topping or a nutty crunch.
