A seasonal crumble dessert with cinnamon and nutmeg spiced pears, delicious oats and melted chocolate.
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.
Place the pears and butter into a large nonstick frying pan. Cook the pears over a moderately high heat for 3-4 minutes, turning occasionally until the pears are soft and golden, yet still retain their shape. Add the sugar and spices and turn gently for a further minute with 2 wooden spoons, to coat the pears in the buttery, sweet spice. Transfer to a shallow gratin dish.
Now make the crumble topping. Place the flour into a bowl and rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles chunky breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar, oats and chocolate chunks. Spoon over the warm pears and bake in the oven for 25 minutes until the crumble is golden and the chocolate has melted.
Serve warm with crème fraîche, if you like.
