Pear and apple crumble with blueberry

Two days ago, my sister brought me some of her three different types of apples. Then my neighbour also gave me some of his two different types of pears from his garden.

Google: “Granny Smith apples are popular for their tart flavour and firm texture. Granny Smith apples are popular for their tart flavour and firm texture. With its sublimely tart flavour and unmistakable green hue, the Granny Smith apple (Malus domestica) is one of the most recognizable and beloved apples in the orchard.”

“Asian pears are a great source of dietary fiber, which helps the digestive system maintain a healthy level of good bacteria and can help regulate cholesterol. Asian pears are also an excellent source of: Potassium. Vitamin C. Bosc pears have a more firm, dense flesh than other pear varieties, so they are ideal for use in baking, broiling or poaching. They retain their shape and texture better than other varieties, and their flavour is less likely to be overwhelmed by the use of strong spices like cinnamon, clove or nutmeg.”

Today, I decided to make crumble using both the apple and pear. This is a simple recipe and most of the ingredients you would have them in your pantry. Well, I have use granny smith apple and red delicious with the Nashi pear and bosc pear. Discovered I have oats so I decided to add it in. Then at the eleventh hour I decided to throw in my last few blueberries just for garnish. I am glad that my pear and apple crumble turned out delicious. Let’s bake!!!!


2 granny smith apples, cored and cut into bite size
1 red delicious, cored and cut into bite size
2 Bosc pears, cored and cut into bite size
1 nashi pear, cored and cut into bite size

Place both types of apples in a baking dish and sprinkle cinnamon over thea apples and drizzle some molasses over it and add about 2-4 Tbs water. Bake the apples for about 20 minutes.

In a bowl put oats, melted butter and some molasses. Mix well until it looks crumbly. Once the apples are soft, bring out the dish and add in both the pears to the cooked apples in the dish. The cover the top with oats crumbly mixture. Bake again for another 25 minutes until top is golden and fruits are bubbling inside. Bring out the dish and then add in the blueberries on top.
