  • 900g firm apples (6 apples)
  • 3g grated orange zest
  • 3g grated lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 35g plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 210g plain flour
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 165g light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 tsp salt

1) Peel, core, and cut the pears and apples into large chunks. Place the fruit in a large bowl and add the zests, juices, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour into a 23cm x 30cm x 5cm oval baking dish.

3) Place the baking dish on a sheet pan and bake for 50 mins to 1 hour, until the top is brown and the fruit is bubbly. Serve warm.
