Ingredients

  • 3 pears
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch grated nutmeg
  • 6 bananas sliced
Topping:
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup cold butter

Method

Peel pears; cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes. In large skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook pears, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, stirring occasionally, until softened and sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Stir in bananas. Divide among six 1-cup (250 mL) ramekins; set aside.

Topping:
In bowl, combine flour and brown and granulated sugars; using fingers, rub in butter until size of small peas with a few larger pieces. Divide among ramekins; press to make firm. Bake on rimmed baking sheet in 350°F (180°C) oven until bubbly and golden, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and store at room temperature for up to 24 hours. Reheat in 350°F/180°C oven for 10 minutes.)
