Apple and Pear Crumble Cake
This 10 minute dessert serves 8 people.

This was the first time I made this recipe and yum I am impressed. I wasn't too sure about the success of it but the end result looks as good as it tastes. It took me 10 minutes to prepare and only cost $0.55 cents per person. I ate this cake as a snack for afternoon tea but you could also serve it up for dessert with some of your favourite custard or cream.

Ingredients (Serves 8 people)

1 cups of wholemeal self raising flour
1 free range egg
teaspoon of mixed spice or cinnamon
cup of milk
cup of raw sugar
50 gram of melted butter
1 x apple
1 x pear
2 tablespoons of Capilano honey
1 tablespoon of rolled oats
1 tablespoon of crushed unsalted peanuts (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 180c degrees.

2. Grease a cake tin preferably a flan cake tin as you do not want to tip this cake upside down when removing it from the cake tin.

3. Mix flour, egg, milk, butter, mixed spice and sugar in a bowl with a wooden spoon until just combined.

4. Peel the apple and pear and thinly slice.
