Method

  1. Melt the butter in a pan, then add the pears, rhubarb, sugar, cinnamon and cloves, and cook over a low heat for 10-12 mins or until just tender. Divide the rhubarb between 4 ovenproof dishes (or use 1 large dish) and set aside.
  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. To make the crumble topping, tip all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse to crumbs. Sprinkle the topping over the fruit filling, then bake for 30 mins or until golden brown on top. Serve with vanilla ice cream or double cream.

Very quick and easy to put together, replaced hazlenuts in the crumble with oats which worked well. Delicious results, will use this recipe again.

Please remember that not everybody has a food processor!Alternatively put the hazelnuts in a plastic bag or wrap in a towel and bash with a rolling pin until crumbly, great fun for the children to do.

Made this last night, really is amazing! I'd cooked the rhubarb separately the night before, so just added it in once the pears were cooked. I also quartered the pears to make it easier to cut out the cores. Will definitely make again :)
