Pear Cobbler


At the Caring Place Community Kitchen, Minoo shared a Pear Cobbler recipe. She was away at Sunshine Coast for the weekend and she picked some pears from her girl friend’s neighbour’s pear tree. You may replace the pear with apple.

The Pear Cobbler is best served warm with ice-cream. I love the cinnamon in it.

Ingredients

Crust:

  • 1 stick butter (1/4 cup)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup honey or Maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Filing:

  • 8 large pears, peeled and sliced

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350F.

IMG_1605Minoo uses a flour blend which is a mixture of white and wheat bran. This is more healthier than the all-purpose flour.
IMG_1606Combine the flour, oats and walnuts in a bowl.
IMG_1608In a medium sized pot, melt the butter. Remove from heat and add the honey. Stir to mix. Add the flour mixture and mix with a fork until crumbly.
IMG_1612Add the raisins, honey, orange rind and cinnamon powder to the pear slices and mix well.
IMG_1614In a buttered pan, evenly spread the pear mixture.
IMG_1615Top with crust mixture.Alternatively, you may use half of the crust to line the bottom of the pan, fill with the pear mixture and top with the rest of the crust mixture. Or you can use all the crust mixture as the base and top with the pear mixtures.

Bake in a 350 preheated oven for 40 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, alone or with vanilla ice-cream.

  1. I used dried cranberries in place of raisins, really gave it a zing and was prettier than raisins. Good recipe, I have a pear tree and am always looking for new ways to use them.

  2. I tried this recipe and it was delicious. I especially enjoyed the layout with the pictures and directions, it made it very easy for me to follow.
    Thank you.
