Gluten free blackberry & pear crumble slice

Remember I told you how the lovely peeps at Tala sent me a lovely new swiss roll tin which meant I could now make tray bakes? Well, I just had to try a crumble slice. As blackberry and pear is my favourite crumble flavour and I thought they would make a great colour for the centre, I went for them. We have enjoyed them cold as an afternoon snack, heated up and served with custard for dessert and, my favourite, for Sunday brunch with a dollop of greek yogurt!

A classic mix of blackberry and pear in a crumbly slice of heaven, serve hot with custard or cold for a tea time treat
