Ingredients

Crumble topping

  • 225g plain flour
  • 80g caster sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 6 ground pecan nuts
  • 50g desiccated coconuts
  • 115g unsalted butter
  • 50g porridge oats

Crumble filling

  • 225g plain flour
  • 80g caster sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 6 ground pecan nuts
  • 50g desiccated coconuts
  • 115g unsalted butter
  • 50g porridge oats
  • 250g blackberries, chopped in half
  • 6 pears, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 50g sugar
  • 150ml boiling water
  • A few drizzles of honey, depending how sweet you want the filling to be

Method

  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 190 degrees and have six ramekins at the ready. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl, then add the salt and powdered ginger. Slowly pour in the sugar.
  • STEP 2
    Chop the butter into small pieces, and add to the flour mixture. Using your hands, mix the crumble well, so that it turns into something like breadcrumbs.
  • STEP 3
    Add the ground pecans, oats, and coconut, and mix well. Set aside.
  • STEP 4
    Put the filling products into a pan for a couple of minutes, or until the liquid is red from the berries and all the sugar is dissolved.
  • STEP 5
    Put two spoonfuls of the fruit (with the liquid) into the ramekins, then heap two large spoonfuls of crumble. Cook in a preheated oven of 190 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • STEP 6
    Serve with custard, cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
