Pear, Chocolate and Almond Crumble : Sweet Punch for December 2010


This month our challenge is to make Pear and Chocolate crumble. A hot bowl of soup and a warm dessert is something perfect to enjoy for this snowy winter. A very simple and easy to make which makes you feel satisfied. I always like to enjoy these warm dessert with some cold ice cream, you can also have with some custard. Thank you Sweet Punch team for this delicious punch.



Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves 2

Ingredients:
Pears- 2
Brown sugar- 2 tbsp
Lemon- juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon
Plain flour- 75 g
Blanched and toasted almonds- 1 tbsp
Butter- 30 g
Milk or plain chocolate- 50 g

Method:
Preheat the oven to 180 degree celsius.
Peel and chop the pears and mix it along with the juice and zest of lemon. Also add the brown sugar and mix well.
Mix the plain flour and butter with your finger tips until it resembles like a bread crumbs, then add  the sugar and chopped almonds and mix well.
Take two tea cups, add the pears and 2 to 3 pieces of chocolate in each cup. Top it with the crumble topping and add the another 2 to 3 pieces of chopped chocolate on top of it. Bake it in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes until it looks golden brown on top.
Serve warm with ice cream or custard.

Note:
You can also increase the measurement and use a large size bowl to make the crumble, in that case it might take longer time to cook.
