  • 750 grams pears peeled and quartered
  • 750 grams granny smith apples peeled and quartered
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp water

For the Crumble

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 90 grams butter chilled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp water


  • Preheat your oven to 200ºC fan-forced and lightly grease a 20cm round pie dish.
  • Peel and slice the pears and apples into quarters and place them along with the water, cinnamon and caster sugar and 2 tablespoons of water into a large saucepan with the lid on and cook over a medium heat for 6 - 8 minutes or until the fruit is just tender when tested with a knife. Drain the excess fluid and transfer the cooked fruit to your pie dish.
  • While the apple and pears are cooking you can make the crumble topping by placing all of the crumble ingredients into a medium bowl and rubbing the butter in until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. 
  • Sprinkle the crumble topping over the top of the cooked fruit and place the baking dish into the oven to cook for 30 - 35 minutes or until the crumble begins to turn a lovely golden brown on top.
  • Carefully remove from the oven and serve.


You can mix up the quantities of pears and apples based on what you have.
You can also use a different variety of apples too.
