Seasonal fruit combined with honey, a touch of spices, and crunchy pecans make an irresistibly luscious and aromatic dessert. Try this Apple Pear Honey Crumble, and you won’t be disappointed!
Hello, everyone. Monday, eh? I feel you. Also, Monday in our area welcomed us with the rainy gloomy weather. Indeed, the weather forecast is not promising as it’s expected to be raining for most of the week. Grrr. A delicious fix is required!
I believe, this Apple Pear Honey Crumble fits the bill!
First of all, it’s delightful and so flavourful! Imagine the combination of apples, pears, honey, and spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg? It’s so good. The union of all these fruit juices, honey, and spices is cozy and warming; it somehow reminded me of the flavour of baklava’s syrup. I didn’t use it myself, but I just thought that some vanilla bean seeds would be a splendid addition, too!
Next, this is about the texture. While baking, apples stay relatively firm while pears (Of course, it depends on their kind, too), combined with honey, turn into a beautiful sweet concoction! This soft and delicate fruit layer is married with the layer of pecans (Which work beautifully with fruit and honey) and finished with the buttery and crumbly (like shortbread) layer. Can you feel already all these flavours and textures going on? Insanely delicious, in my book!
Of course, you can always opt for either apples or pears if you don’t like to mix them together. Just remember that it’s always good to use a few varieties of apples and pears in baking, for the best results.
So, I hope you make and enjoy this Apple Pear Honey Crumble, and your week will be nice and enjoyable!
