Pear & Chocolate Crumble

An dish full of a sweet crumble and serving bowls

To me, pears and chocolate is a match made in heaven. I decided to unite them in a comfy rustic crumble, the kind I’d have on a rainy Sunday afternoon, curled up on the sofa. I remember the first time I prepared a pear and chocolate crumble, which was back in my student days, and I had invited a few friends around – they had literally devoured it! I’ve tweaked a bit the recipe since then, making a wholesome topping of oats, rice flour, a touch of muscovado sugar & almond purée. It was a winner and definitely the perfect kind of pud for cold winter days. Hoping you’ll like it as much as we did.
