Recipe adapted from Domestic Sluttery -
  • 250g gluten free plain flour mix (or plain if not needing a GF slice)
  • 150g butter (I used 50g butter, 100g Nuttlex low fat margarine)
  • 70g raw sugar (I used Turbinado sugar)
  • 30g honey
  • 1 egg
  • 6 halves of tinned pears (feel free to use fresh if those available are ripe enough)
  • 50g gluten free porridge oats (optional)
  • 10g blue cheese of choice (I used a medium strength French style cheese)
  • 30g walnuts
  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4
  2. Place flour and butter into TMX bowl and blitz on Speed 4 for about five seconds or until crumbs form.
  3. Add the sugar and blitz on Speed 4 again for five seconds.
  4. Remove about 200g of the mixture and reserve it for later.
  5. Add the egg to TMX bowl and combine on Speed 4 for five seconds.
  6. Press the cake mixture evenly into a 20cm x 20cm tin and top with sliced pears.
  7. For the crumble, place oats and walnuts into the TMX bowl and blitz on Speed 6 for a couple of seconds. Add the reserved 200g mixture and blue cheese to TMX bowl and combine on Speed 4 for five seconds.
  8. Sprinkle crumble mix over the top of the pears, adding a teaspoon extra of sugar if desired or drizzle of honey.
  9. Bake for 1 hour, until the top is golden brown. Allow to cool before slicing and serving.
  10. Leave to cool in the tin before slicing.
