Crumble recipe in The Guardian

A little late, but thought I'd share my recipe for a great wintry nutty apple, pear and maple syrup crumble that was featured in The Guardian's new Cook section last weekend - very exciting to be featured!  Here's the link to the article, and the recipe below:

Serves 4-6
30g butter
3 tbsp maple syrup
3 pears, peeled, cored and chopped into chunks
3 apples, peeled, cored and chopped into chunks

Crumble topping:
50g plain flour
50g spelt flour
75g butter
75g light brown sugar
50g chopped walnuts
50g oats

1 Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6. To make the topping, rub the butter into the flours with your fingertips or blend in a food processor until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar, walnuts and oats.
2 Melt the butter in a large frying pan, before adding the apples and pears. Cook for 5 minutes or so over a medium heat until they start to soften.  Add the maple syrup and cook for a couple more minutes.
3 Put the fruit into a shallow baking dish, then sprinkle with the crumble topping. Bake for 25 minutes or so until golden.
