Apple and Pear Crumble

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

The easiest way to make the crumble is in a food processor. Put all the ingredients except the muesli into the bowl and whizz the mixture up until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Next, fold in the muesli – you don’t want to blend it as you will lose the texture of the lovely oats. That’s your crumble made.

Peel and core the fruit, chopping it into fairly thin slices, a few millimetres thick. In the bottom of a large dish, mix in the sultanas and sugar, folding the mixture gently together so as not to break up the fruit. Pour the crumble mixture over the top, pressing down gently and ensuring everything is evenly covered.

Bake the crumble in the oven for 35 minutes, and then rest for a few, as it will be scorching inside. Give everyone a large spoonful and serve with lots of ice cream, custard or cream. Or all three, if you’re feeling piggy.
