Pear, apple and ginger crumble


  • 2 x 410g tins pear halves in juice, drained and roughly chopped, juice reserved
  • 600g/1lb 5oz apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
  • 30g/1oz honey
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 180g/6oz raisins or sultanas
  • 1 lemon, zest only

For the topping

  • 200g/7oz rolled oats
  • 50g/1¾oz flaked almonds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 30g/1oz honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch salt

To serve

  • 500g/1lb 2oz thick Greek yoghurt


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4.

  2. Place the chopped pears into a large saucepan. Pour in most of the reserved liquid, reserving a couple of spoonfuls for sweetening the yoghurt later.

  3. Add the apples to the pears, along with the honey, ginger, raisins and lemon zest. Set over a high heat, bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat, cover and cook for 5 minutes, or until soft. Tip into an ovenproof dish.

  4. To make the topping, put the oats in a bowl and add a pinch of salt. Add the almonds, cinnamon, honey and oil, then stir to combine. Spread the oat mixture over the fruit in an even layer and bake for 20 minutes until golden-brown.

  5. Stir the remaining pear juice into the yoghurt to sweeten. Serve with the crumble.
