The crumble cake with pears is a delicious and truly irresistible dessert. This is the autumnal variant of the classic crumble cake made with almonds. A crumbling and crunchy shell contains a filling of pears and powdered cinnamon, for a soft, enveloping and fragrant result. In our version we have chosen the Williams pears variety which, sugary and with a dark pulp, lends itself perfectly to this kind of preparation. A tart with a strong flavor and simple to prepare, which will win you over at the first bite; enjoy it for breakfast, together with a jar of yogurt or a cup of white tea, or at the end of a rich Sunday lunch. So let’s find out how to prepare it by following all our tips and photographic steps.
