This peach, pear and almond crumble is such a sweet weekend treat. I love experimenting in the kitchen and coming up with flavourful dishes. This crumble is truly scrumptious, the combination of two sweet and juicy fruits and almond is absolutely fantastic. With litte effort and a few inexpensive ingredients, you get such beautiful dessert.
Crumble is truly a classic British pudding, with apple being probably the most-loved one, although peach, plum, rhubarb, berries, pear are also common. The pudding became very popular during World War Il, when food rationing was in place, thus the topping was a far more economical alternative to the more sophisticated pie pastry.
For my crumble l used plain flour, jumbo oats, ground and flaked almonds, although you can make only used flour, if you wish or do not have the other ingredients. The crumble is crunchy and nutty with a juicy fruit goodness. It can’t get any tastier or easier than that.
