Keep it covered and refrigerated, for up to 1 week. 





Excellent for those cold seasons, as an organic unrefined sugar made from the sugarcane without the bleaching and refining panela sugarcane offers more micronutrients, vitamins, and minerals than refined sugar. Not to be confused with brown sugar which is just white sugar with molasses poured onto it, panela sugarcane is the real deal, direct from the cane grinds. It has a crumbled sticky duality.



  • 2 1/8 cups self-rising flour
  • 9 tbsp unsalted and chilled butter
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp panela sugarcane
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp steel cut oats

Fruit Layer

  • 8 Plums
  • 3 Pears
  • 1 medium-sized Granny Smith apple
  • 1 tablespoon panela sugarcane

Preparation & Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 355F. Place a sided baking tray, that is big enough to hold the chosen baking dish, in the middle of the oven to be heating throughout the process and will catch any escaping fruit juices during official baking.
3. Use a paring knife, cut a line around the plums. Twist both sides of the plums so they cleanly separate, then remove the plum seed. Cut the halves into 6 pieces each. Repeat the process with the pears while removing the core and cut the pears to match the size of the plums. Peel the apples, cut them into fourths, remove the core, and chop the apples into pieces.
4. Place the fruits into a baking dish. Toss them so they are evenly dispersed. Drizzle over a tablespoon of panela. Sprinkle the crumble on top.
5. Put the dish into the heated baking tray in the oven. Set the time to 50 minutes. Rotate the crumble halfway through baking. With a paring knife, prod through the crumble in order to check if the fruit is completely cooked.
6. Eat up with some yummy ice-cream or pairing of choice.
