Dessert

Ingredients
  • 1 dessert apple, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 25 g (1 oz) ready-to-eat dried apples, chopped (optional)
  • 400 g (13 oz) can pear halves in juice, drained with 4 tablespoons juice reserved, roughly chopped
  • 200 g (7 oz) ripe plums, halved, stoned and quartered
  • 25 g (1 oz) raisins or golden raisins
  • 75 g (3 oz) wholemeal flour
  • 50 g (2 oz) rolled oats
  • 25 g (1 oz) bran
  • pinch of salt
  • 50 g (2 oz) pecan nuts, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soft dark brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon mixed spice
  • 75 g (3 oz) butter, melted
Directions

Put all of the prepared fruit and raisins into a shallow, rectangular ovenproof dish, approximately 28 x 20 cm (11 x 8 inches). Drizzle over the reserved pear juice.

Mix together the dry topping ingredients in a large bowl. Pour over the melted butter and combine until the mixture resembles large breadcrumbs. Sprinkle over the fruit and press down firmly.

Place in a preheated oven, 180°C (350°F), Gas Mark 4, for 40–45 minutes or until golden and crisp. Serve with fat-free Greek yogurt, if liked.
