Feijoa and Pear Anzac Crumble

The pears and feijoas work beautifully together, the whole thing is quick and easy to make and has a delicious, nostalgic, comforting vibe. 

Serves: 6-8


5 pears or granny smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into 2-3cm chunks
1 ½ cups roughly chopped feijoa flesh (about 11-12)
2 tablespoons water 
2 tablespoons golden syrup

Anzac Crumble

150 grams butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 cup oats
1 cup desiccated coconut
½ cup plain flour
¾ cup brown or muscovado sugar

To Serve
softly whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream

Baking dish approximately 16cm x 28cm.


Preheat oven to 170°C fan bake.

Put pears or apples and feijoas, water and golden syrup in a large pot and cook over a medium heat for 8-12 minutes until they are just soft. Cool in the remaining liquid.

Melt butter with golden syrup in a large pot, or in a large bowl in the microwave. Add all remaining ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until combined. 

Put pears or apples and feijoas in the baking. Load on the crumble topping. This should clump together to make nice big crunchy bits when cooked.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream.

COOK’S NOTE: If making this recipe with pears and feijoas, make sure they are just ripe when using, rock hard and they won’t soften up enough. Depending on whether they are almost ripe or really ripe keep an eye on the initial pot-cooking time, as you may not need quite as long.
