This recipe Is gorgeous and very different, the crumble topping is perfect too! I had just picked up 2 mangoes - reduced at the supermarket and a neighbour had brought me some pears from their garden I would never have put the two together so I was really pleased when I found this recipe! I had to substitute brazil nuts for the pecan nuts - as I didn't have any - but having that crunch in the crumble was great! I only used 65g as well and that was plenty. Give this recipe a try.....you won't be disappointed!

So delicious!

I always make half quantities using 1 mango. I have also used a tin of pears instead of fresh, omitting the first lot of sugar and the extra cooking step.

I sprinkle the chopped pecans after the topping as I always have too much topping - that way there are no nuts wasted if you have to throw some away.

Oh and don't overdo the fresh ginger. I used a touch too much first time I cooked this and the gingers heat and spiciness almost overpowered the subtle flavours of the fruit. It takes about 2-3 times cooking it to get it to your personal taste.

Very simple to make and tasted divine! Love the exotic mix of mango with the ginger and pear. The dish I used was a bit small, and I only had 1 mango so reduced the other ingredients accordingly, but there didn't seem enough crumble, so next time I will add more! We had this served straight out the oven with custard.

Really really good! I initially thought the topping was not melded together enough, but it covered all the fruit really nicely. I loved the mango, ginger and pear flavours all together. Thumbs up from me and the boyfriend.

We love this dish - I've made it numerous times, and it never fails to deliver, even from frozen. Top marks!

Used a bit of ground ginger as didn't want to buy stem ginger and was lovely. Will invest in stem ginger now and make again!
