Ahh, the humble apple and pear crumble. This recipe switches things up by swapping your regular apple for custard apples.


For the filling:

  • 2 medium custard apples 

  • 4 ripe pears, peeled, cored & thinly sliced (800 g) 

  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger 

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt 

  • 1 tbsp rapadura or coconut sugar (15 g)

For the crumble topping:

  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats 

  • 1/2 cup wholemeal, spelt, or gluten free flour (70 g) 

  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds (35 g) 

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (60 ml) 

  • 1/4 cup olive oil (60 ml), plus extra for baking dish 

  • Pinch sea salt 


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly brush a standard (22cm) pie dish with a bit of olive oil.

  2. Scoop custard apple from the skin and remove seeds. Discard seeds and skin. Combine custard apple flesh and sliced pears in a large bowl.

  3. Sprinkle fruit with the ginger, salt, sugar and lemon juice, and toss gently to combine. Tip into the prepared pie plate.

  4. In a medium bowl, combine all crumble topping ingredients and stir until oats are evenly coated. Sprinkle crumble over fruit.

  5. Place the baking dish on a tray to catch any drips and bake crumble for 30 minutes, until fruit is bubbling and topping is golden. Serve warm or at room temperature with a scoop of yoghurt or ice cream.
