  • 200g butter cut into cubes
  • 250g flour

Preheat oven to 200°C. Add the chunks of apple and pear and the grated ginger into a bowl. Cover with the juice of half a lime and 2 tablespoons water. Add flour, sugar and the ground ginger and mix well so all the fruit is well coated. Place in an ovenproof dish and into the oven for 10 minutes.

While the fruit is in the oven, make the crumble. Add the butter and flour to a large mixing bowl and use your hands to crumble them together until you get a fine breadcrumb texture. Add all other ingredients and mix.

Place onto a baking tray. You can also use your hands to press some of the mix together so you get some bigger chunks.

Place in the oven for 15 minutes with the fruit (the fruit should cook for a total of 25 minutes).

When the fruit is soft and the crumble just golden, remove from the oven and cover the fruit with a generous amount of crumble.

You can either serve this just after adding the crumble on the top or you can set it to the site and re-heat it in the oven for 15-20 minutes after dinner.
