Using Rude Health Sprouted Porridge Oats in the topping for this indulgent autumn crumble gives it a chunkier texture - a little like flapjacks crossed with shortbread. A pinch of cardamom cooked with the pears and a layer of white chocolate adds to the richness. Now all you have to decide is cream or custard (or both)?

Method

1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Use the back of a spoon to crack open the cardamom pods and shake the seeds out into a pestle and mortar. Grind into a fine powder. No pestle and mortar? Use a small, sturdy bowl and the end of a rolling pin or base of a jam jar instead.
2. Peel the pears and apples, quarter them and scoop out the seeds and cores. Melt 50g of the butter in a frying pan. Add the fruit, ground cardamom and 50g of the sugar. Sizzle for 8-10 mins, gently stirring frequently to turn the pears, till the fruit are lightly browned and softened. Tip the fruit and pan juices into an ovenproof dish.
3. Roughly chop the chocolate buttons and scatter them over the fruit. Set aside.
4. Chop the remaining 100g cold butter into a mixing bowl. Shake in the sprouted porridge oats, flour and the remaining 25g caster sugar. Add a pinch of salt. Use your fingertips to rub everything together to make small, soft clumps. This wil take 3-4 mins.
5. Sprinkle the crumble topping over the pears to cover them. Slide the tin into the oven and bake for 30-40 mins till golden and bubbling. Let the crumble cool in the dish for 10-15 mins, then serve with double cream or custard.

This is SO good - what a delicious combination. And I haven’t even got round to trying it with custard or cream... Very straightforward to make. Thank you!
