Notes about this recipe

    Like jifar, I added ground almonds to the crumble. The crumble recipe is for a large amount, for this recipe I prepared 10%, and it was the perfect amount. I used only 75g of apple and 200g pear. I was afraid the cinnamon and cloves would dominate, but no fear - it was a perfect complement. A light and delicately flavored cake. The ONLY negative is that I dirtied up 7 bowls!

    This is a lovely cake. I suspect I will make it again.
