• Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Peel and quarter pears, then remove core. Zest lemon to get a generous pinch. In a large heatproof bowl, microwave the butter in 10 second bursts until melted. • Combine the water and the brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, add pear, then reduce heat to medium. Cover with a lid. Simmer, turning pear occasionally, until tender, 20-25 minutes. Remove from heat.


• While the pear is poaching, add classic oat mix (see ingredients) and sweet golden spice blend (see ingredients) to the melted butter. Stir to combine. • Evenly spread crumble on one side of a lined oven tray. On the other side, place pecans and spread out evenly. Bake until golden, 4-6 minutes. Set aside to cool.

TIP: Keep the crumb slightly clumped together on the tray, if it's spread too thin it can burn!


• While the crumb is cooling, add cream cheese (see ingredients) to a medium bowl and beat, using electric beaters, until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Add light cooking cream, lemon zest and the white sugar and beat until well combined and smooth, 1-2 minutes. • Remove pears from poaching liquid, then return pan to high heat. • Bring poaching liquid to the boil and cook until light golden brown and reduced to a caramel, 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat. Set aside to cool slightly.

TIP: Watch the caramel carefully so it doesn’t burn!


• Roughly chop pecans. • Divide cream cheese mixture between serving bowls. Top with some spiced oat crumble, lemon poached pears and pecans. • Drizzle over caramel to serve. Enjoy!

TIP: Store any remaining crumble in an airtight container.
