  • 1 tbsp cold unsalted butter
  • 3 ripe but firm pears peeled, cored and cubed (I used Anjou pears)
  • 1 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • 3 large bananas cut into ¼-inch thick slices


  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp cold unsalted butter


  • In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add pears, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cook, stirring, occasionally, until pear has softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in bananas. Divide mixture among six (200 ml) ramekins. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. In a bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Add the butter. Using your finger or a fork, work the mixture until it has the consistency of coarse bread crumbs. Divide the topping among ramekins.
  • Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until topping is golden and fruit filling is bubbling, about 35 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
