Baked Pears and Apples with Delectable Crumble Topping

Baked Pears and Apples with Delectable Crumble Topping

Are you a fan of fruity desserts with a twist? If yes, our Baked Pears and Apples with Crumble Topping is the recipe you should definitely try. I originally fell in love with the classic plum crumble, but this baked pear variation has blown me away. It's surprisingly simple to prepare, yet the end result is nothing short of a flavor explosion. The warm, freshly baked version will surely win your heart, but don't hesitate to make extra servings. The fruity aroma intensifies after a day in the fridge, making the leftovers an equally delightful treat.

In this recipe, I'm experimenting by doubling the crumble topping. As you'll see in the pictures, I've tried this combination with apples as well and it turned out equally fantastic. Remember, choosing the right type of baking apples is key.


6 pieces
or apples
100 g
5 tbsp
Oat flakes
4 tbsp
White flour
4 tbsp
Chopped walnuts
0.5 cups
Cinnamon powder
0.5 tsp

Step by step


Start by melting the butter in a pan.


Stir in the flour, sugar, and oatmeal, then allow the mixture to cook for 2-3 minutes.


Take the pan off the heat and add in the chopped walnuts and cinnamon.


Mix everything together to form a slightly sticky yet crumbly mixture.


Next, cut the pears in half and core them.


Hold each pear half in your hand and use your other hand to press a handful of the crumble mixture onto the pear's surface.

Using a spoon for this might seem easier, but you may find it more challenging as the crumbs can scatter.


Arrange the pear halves on a baking tray, lined with baking paper.

You'll notice I've also prepared some halves using apples.


Bake in a preheated oven at 160 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes.

Monitor the baking process. The crumble should turn a golden brown, but the pears or apples should not fall apart. A good way to check is by piercing them with a toothpick. If it goes in easily, they're ready.


In my experience, the pears baked perfectly. The apples were thoroughly baked as well - this will depend on the apple variety you use for baking.


You can serve these warm or cold. They pair well with a scoop of ice cream, though this is optional.

Bon appétit!
