A delicious dessert, perfect for the whole family. We used wholewheat flour to boost the fibre and buttermilk for a lovely homemade taste.

Ingredients

Pear(s)

4 medium, peeled, cored and sliced thinly

Light Brown Sugar

3½ tablespoons

Plain White Flour

35 g

Lemon Juice, Fresh

2 teaspoons

Ground Cinnamon

1 teaspoons, level

Margarine, Hard

1 tablespoons, low fat

White Self Raising Flour

35 g, (wholemeal)

Buttermilk

100 ml

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4/180°C/350°F. Coat a 20cm (8in) square baking tin with cooking spray.
  2. Place the pears, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of flour, lemon juice and cinnamon in a large bowl; toss to coat and pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining flours and brown sugar. Add the margarine and rub in using finger tips until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Stir in the buttermilk until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Drop four heaped spoonfuls of dough onto the pear mixture. Cook for 35-40 minutes until the crust is risen and golden brown. Divide between 4 dishes and serve.
