    What to do

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 220°C.

  • 2. Prepare all of the ingredients based on the instructions in the ingredients list. Remember to put a damp tea towel under your chopping board to stop it from slipping.

  • 3. Place the water, lemon juice and caster sugar in the saucepan. Bring to a simmer.

  • 4. Drop the pears into the syrup.

  • 5. Put the lid on the saucepan. Turn the heat down to low, and simmer for 7–10 minutes, until tender.

  • 6. Drain the poaching juice off into a bowl (you can use this for future dishes - just store, label and freeze it). Place the fruit in the bottom of the baking dish.

  • 7. To make the topping, mix the sugar, baking powder and ground ginger or cinnamon together in a bowl.

  • 8. In another bowl, add the flour and oats. Crumble the butter into the mix and use your fingers to squeeze the ingredients together and form pea-sized pieces.

  • 9. Toss the flour mixture in with the sugar mixture.

  • 10. Spread the topping over the fruit.

  • 11. Bake for 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and bubbling at the edges.
