Maple pear and blackberries

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan.

In a pan place the pears, half of the blackberries, cinnamon, star anise, maple syrup and 340ml water.

Simmer gently for 10 minutes and add more water if needed.

Remove the cinnamon stick and star anise and pour the fruit into an oven-proof dish.

Place the rest of the blackberries on top.


To make the crumble, combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly using your fingers.

Cover the fruit with the crumble mix.

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and crisp.

To serve

The crumble can be served hot or cold.
