To serve

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  2. Chop the pears, apple and nectarines and place in a pan over a low heat with the lemon juice. Warm through for 10 minutes.

  3. For the crumble topping, in a bowl, rub together the flour and butter with your hands until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the remaining dry ingredients and the demarara sugar. Set aside.

  4. Take a small roasting tin. Layer the warm fruit on the bottom, along with the chopped banana. Sprinkle with the golden caster sugar.

  5. Top with the crumble mixture and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the topping is golden-brown. Serve immediately with cream or custard.
