a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

c) Reserve 2 tsp of sugar in a small bowl and set aside to use later for the creme fraiche.
d) Cut the butter into small cubes. Pop half into the fridge to chill for the crumble mixture and pop the other half into a large frying pan.
a) Heat the frying pan on medium heat and gently melt the butter. When the butter starts to sizzle, add the chopped pears, cinnamon and half the remaining caster sugar to the pan.
b) Cook, stirring regularly, until the sugar melts and the pears start to soften, 4-5 mins.
c) While the pears cook, pop the remaining chilled butter into a medium bowl with the flour. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs.
d) Stir the chocolate chips, crushed hazelnuts, granola and the remaining sugar into the flour. This is your crumble topping!
