Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
Place half of the chopped pear in a medium sized ovenproof dish and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons caster sugar. Then top with the rest of the pear.
To make the crumble topping: Sieve the flour into a bowl. Add butter and sugar and rub in until mix looks like breadcrumbs. Then add the oats and cinnamon (if using) and mix. Spread the crumble topping on top of the pears.
Bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until pears are soft and crumble topping is golden brown.
I made this the other day when I had a few dessert pears left over. It was the first time my children had tried a pear crumble as I usually stick to the traditional apple! They loved it! It went down a treat and they have been asking me to make it frequently since! My gran visited on the same day and tried some (a tough judge indeed!) and she loved it and had extras Phew! A definite hit which is now part of our family menu! - 22 Aug 2015
