An American-style dessert, halfway between a crumble and a pie.


500g pears, peeled, cored and cut into wedges
400g blackberries
200g golden caster sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp cornflour
175g self-raising flour
75g chilled unsalted butter, cubed
125ml buttermilk or wholemilk natural yogurt


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6.
Pile the pears and blackberries into an ovenproof dish about 26 x 18cm.
Sprinkle over 50g sugar, the cinnamon and the cornflour.
Gently stir together to mix.
2. Put the flour in a food processor, add the butter and 100g sugar, and whizz for a few seconds until crumbs form.
Add the buttermilk and whizz briefly until a squidgy dough forms.
3. Scatter clumps of the dough over the fruit – don’t cover completely.
Sprinkle the rest of the sugar over and bake for 40 minutes, or until the fruit is tender and the topping pale-golden.
Gorgeous hot with cream.

  1. Oh good Lord! Suddenly my little snack of pretzel sticks looks completely unappetizing. That looks absolutely amazing!
