I made these in individual large ramekins to use up a glut of pears from our Abel and Cole vegetable box. Serves 5.
5 or 6 pears depending on size
75g plain flour
10g porridge oats
75g vanilla sugar plus a little to sprinkle on top
6 cardamom pods (seeds only, ground)
Work the butter and flour and oats together until a breadcrumb texture is achieved. Add the sugar and cardamom. Dice the pears and share between the individual ramekins or in a single dish. Loosely spread the topping on top sprinkle a little extra sugar on top then cook for 20-30 minutes in a 200C oven until the top is browning. Serve with custard or ice-cream.
