Pear Crumble Cake Recipe

By Lena's Vegan Living

🔪Prep Time: 15 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 30 mins



2 cups of quinoa flakes

2 cups of almond flour

½ cup of ground sunflower seeds

½ cup of raw coconut oil melted above steam in double boiler

½ cup of maple syrup

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Pinch of pink Himalayan salt

Mix all well in a large bowl.


1 cup of quinoa flakes

1 cup of almond flour

¼ cup of raw coconut oil melted

¼ cup of maple syrup

Pinch of pink Himalayan salt

¼ tsp cinnamon powder

Mix all well and set aside.


6 to 8 Bartlett pears or pears of your choice

1 tsp cinnamon powder

½ cup ground pecans

¾ cup raw coconut sugar

To garnish

¼ cup roasted and grind pecans

13 anise stars optional


1Make the crust and set aside.

2Make the crumble and set aside.

3Wash, peel and cut your pears into quarters, remove the stems and the core. Cut the quarters into cubes and transfer into a bowl.

4Add cinnamon powder, grind pecans and mix.

5Gradually add coconut sugar while mixing until all is well blended. Set aside.

6Preheat oven to 350F, 175C.

7Line your pan with parchment paper. Brush with oil first, for the parchment paper to stick. You may brush the sides of the pan as well.

8Transfer all the crust mixture in the pan and spread all evenly with your hands. I suggest wearing surgical gloves or other gloves of your choice.

9Start pressing down making the bottom surface flat, while creating a rim around the edges. Keep pressing until all is nice and smooth. The rim should be approximately 1 ½ inch high and ½ inch thick.

10Don’t worry, if it is uneven, you can trim the higher parts by using butter knife and press down with your fingers after. (See attached video).

11Fill with pear filling by using slotted spoon to make sure most of the liquid form the pears stays in the bowl. Otherwise, the liquid would leak through the pan. You can cook that liquid for couple of minutes to make a caramel drizzle for your ice cream.

12Top with crumble.

13Bake for 20minutes.

14When ready, let it cool for at least 30min or more before you open the spring pan.

15Top with roasted grind pecans and you may decorate with anise stars. Or with whole pecans.

16You may serve with ice cream and caramel drizzle.
