Pear and cranberry brown betty
Brown Betty is an American take on fruit crumble. Sweetened breadcrumbs are layered between fruit then cooked until golden.
High fibre wholemeal bread
140 g, (made into 2 cups breadcrumbs)
Reduced fat oil spread
¼ cup(s), (55g)
Canned pears in natural juice, drained
820 g, (canned, drained) thinly sliced
- Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Place breadcrumbs in a large bowl. Rub in spread until coarse crumbs form. Stir in sugar and cinnamon.
- Place half the pears and half the cranberries in four 1-cup (250ml) capacity ramekins. Sprinkle over half the breadcrumb mixture. Repeat layers, finishing with breadcrumb mixture.
- Place ramekins on a baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and heated through. Serve.
