Sick of the typical apple crumble? Feel a flavour hit with this pear, strawberry and macadamia crumble to get your senses tingling.
- 6 Buerre Bosc pears each peeled and cut into six segments, seeds removed
- 50 g sugar
- 1 orange zested and juiced
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 vanilla pod split and seeds scraped
- 1 punnet strawberries hulled, large halved
- 200 g plain flour
- 100 g butter cold and diced
- 90 g raw caster sugar
- 100 g raw macadamias coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 170°C.
Place pears, sugar, orange juice and zest, cinnamon and vanilla pod seeds in a saucepan. Over a moderate heat simmer gently for approximately 15 minutes until the pears soften. Add strawberries and set aside.
To make the crumble, place the flour, butter, sugar and macadamias in a large bowl and rub the mixture together with your fingers until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Spoon the pear mixture into a large ovenproof dish and sprinkle over the topping (alternatively divide the mixture evenly between six small ovenproof dishes and place on a baking sheet before placing in the oven). Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.
Serve with creme fraiche, cream, Greek yoghurt or vanilla ice cream.
