• 4 apples and 4 pears, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
  • 1.5 cm piece fresh root ginger, finely grated
  • 100 g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 50 g Scottish porridge oats
  • 50 g golden caster sugar
  • 100 g English unsalted butter, diced
  • 75 g British plain flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4.

  2. 2

    Place the apples, pears and ginger in a small pan. Cover and cook on a medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until softened.

  3. 3

    Place the mixture in a large, shallow ovenproof dish and top with 75g of the chocolate.

  4. 4

    For the crumble topping, mix the oats, caster sugar, butter, flour and vanilla extract together, rubbing the butter between your fingertips until the mixture has a crumbly texture – or you can use a food processor.

  5. 5

    Sprinkle the crumble topping over the mixture and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Melt the remaining chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, drizzle over the crumble and serve.
