Tuesday Tasters....Fruit Crumble

Well again i had some fruit which was a little over-ripe so I decided to make a fruit crumble for dessert.

Pears were the main fruit but I had a couple of 'softish' apples to so they got chucked in with it.

Ingredients; 5 Conference Pears (peeled and cored)
                   2 small rosy apples (peeled and cored)
                   2 teaspoons of sugar
                   Sprinkling of cinnamon

For the crumble; 200g plain flour
                          100g butter
                          100g sugar
                          10 ginger nut biscuits.

fruit prepared for crumble
First peel all your fruit and put in your chosen dish and then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. If you wish to you can cook your fruit first but I prefer mine cooked only in the oven.

Take from he oven and either serve immediately, when cold or even re-heated the next day. I like mine warm with some fresh cream but you can have ice-cream or custard if you prefer!!

The ginger biscuits just add a little extra something to the crumble mixture and give it a bit of extra taste. I'm not one much for following a recipe...I just tend to add what I fancy at the time!!

It tasted delicious!!


  1. That looks delicious, and I like the sound of the added ginger biscuits, I'll have to remember that.

  2. I like chopped walnuts or oats mixed in the crumble as an alternative too but have never tried ginger biscuits. Ginger would go well with rhubarb!

    1. I have put oats in my crumble mix before and some nuts...never tried walnut as of yet though!!!

  3. Mmmmmm....can I have mine with evaporated milk please? X

    1. Shame on my Fran...how could I have forgotten about evaporated milk!!

    2. I love recipes like this, simple and yummy :)

    3. Simple is often the best way to go Ann...it means slightly less mess!!

  4. looks and sounds delicious! I have never used ginger nut biscuits...what an interesting twist! thanks!

    1. I like to try pout little things....sometimes it's gross...but this really works!!

  5. Dear Tanya, These are my favorite desserts. Blessings, Catherine
