Spicy Pear and Almond Crumble – Lovefoodies hanging out! Tease your taste buds!

Spiced Pear & Almond Crumble

Having made apple crumble from as young as 12 years old, I decided to make some changes and play around with some flavours to make something new and delicious. The humble apple crumble still features in my kitchen every so often, but I have to say, this Pear & Almond Crumble takes the traditional recipe to another taste level.

The addition of the ground almonds to the crumble makes it crunchier and  tastier, the pears adds a refreshing change to apple, and the addition of the spices seem to enhance the flavours of the pear and almond. I have to say, the combination of flavours, textures, and indeed the smells coming from the oven are truly a delicious cooking and eating experience! Served with warm custard, this is by far one of my favourite and most pleasing desserts. In this recipe, I have made it easier regarding preparation time, by using mixed spice / pumpkin pie spice. However, if you wanted to use a cinnamon stick, cloves and star anise and infuse the pears in hot water with the spices for a few hours, you could.  I did this method at Christmas time, and it does give a gentle ‘spice’ flavour to every bite. Really quite sublime.
