A Chocolate Lover’s Dream-Chocolate Crumble With Pears, Candied Ginger and Walnuts
CHOOLATE CRUMBLE WITH PEARS, CANDIED GINGER AND WALNUTS
200 g/ 7 oz flour
100 g/ 3,5 oz sugar
6 tblsp cocoa powder
150 g/ 5,3 oz butter, not hard but not too soft either
2-3 mature pears
100 g/3,5 oz walnuts, roughly chopped
50 g/ 1,75 oz candied ginger, chopped (optional)
butter for the form
Mix the dry ingredients and then add the butter in pieces and rub it into the flour mixture until you have a crumbly mixture, like breadcrumbs.
Slice the pears thinly and butter an oven-proof form generously. Put a layer of pear slices on the bottom of the form, sprinkle candied ginger and walnuts over and then cover it all with the chocolate crumble topping.
Bake in a pre-heated oven (175°C/350°F) for 20-30 minutes. Take it out and let it cool down a little before serving.
