Woman's Weekly recipe You can't beat a warming bowl of comfort food in these chilly winter months. Why not treat yourself to a hearty portion of pear, apple and raspberry crumble - serve warm or cold with custard or cream.

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe pears
  • 2 medium cooking apples
  • 150g (5oz) frozen raspberries
For the crumble:
  • 200g (7oz) plain flour
  • 100g (3oz) ground almonds
  • 150g (5oz) butter
  • 125g (4oz) demerara sugar
  • Handful of flaked almonds

Use other frozen fruits for the filling, such as plums, or forest fruits, with the pear and apple.

Method

  1. Set the oven to Gas Mark 5 or 190C.
  2. To make the crumble: Mix the flour and ground almonds in a bowl. Rub in the butter, then mix in all but 3 tbsp of the demerara sugar. Set aside.
  3. Peel, quarter and core the pears and apples. Thickly slice the apple and put all the fruit in a large ovenproof dish (preferably shallow) with the 3 tbsp of demerara sugar and 5 tablespoons water.
  4. Spoon the crumble mixture over the top and sprinkle with the flaked almonds. Bake on a baking sheet for 50-60 mins until the juices start to bubble up through the crumble. Serve warm or cold with custard or cream, if you like.
