Sometimes it is nice to deviate from the standard crumble formula and that is when I stumbled on this great pear and blackberry version with an almond crumble.


Serves: 6 

  • 1kg pears
  • 500g blackberries (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 90g cold butter
  • 3/4 cup (90g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (155g) dark brown soft sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 60g coarsely cut almonds (skin-on)

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
  2. Peel pears, core and cube. Wash and drain blackberries.
  3. Mix pears and blackberries in a large bowl with 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and cardamom. Pour into a buttered baking dish.
  4. Mix butter (in small pieces) with flour, dark brown soft sugar, salt, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and almonds until a crumbly mass forms.
  5. Spread over fruit and bake in preheated oven 45 minutes until topping starts to bubble. Serve warm.
