Pear, blackberry & chocolate crumble/Crumble de pera, amora e chocolate

The summer berries are slowly disappearing from the greengrocers; raspberries, blackberries and blueberries are now becoming more sparse in shops and the ones we will see during winter months, are flown in from warmer countries and not, for this reason, seasonal.  This week I got given a huge bag of delicious pears with which I decided to make a crumble, combining some plump blackberries and chocolate. Great combination of flavours in a dessert, perfect for the first Autumn days.

Pear, blackberry & chocolate crumble/Crumble de pera, amora e chocolate

Ingredients

6 medium pears (peeled, seeded and cut in quarters)
6-8 blackcberries
1 tbsp of caster sugar

For the topping

25 gr of dark chocolate (t with with 70% of cocoa solids)
1 tbsp of oat flakes
2 tbsp of white flour
50 gr of unsalted cold butter
1 tbsp of caster sugar

Preparation

Pre-heat the oven at 190 °C.

Place the pears and the blackberries on a baking dish and sprinkle with the sugar.

Put all the ingredients for the topping in your food processor and whizz until it becomes well combined and with a sand like consistency. Sprinkle on top of the fruit and bake in the oven for at least 15-20 minutes.

Remove from oven, let it cool down but serve warm with a dollop of vanilla icecream or a splash of cream.
