Pear dessert - Pärondessert


A fine, slightly old-fashioned dessert which makes you think of Sunday dinner at your grandmother’s …

4 servings

4 pears, approx 1 lb
2/3 cups whipping cream
2 tbsps sugar
1 tbsp treacle
1 tsp cocoa
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla sugar
1½ tbsps potato starch
1 cup milk
good 1/3 cup flaked almonds

Peel, core and split the pears. Boil until almost tender in about 1 cup water – time depending on how ripe the pears are.

Bring cream, sugar, treacle and cocoa in a small saucepan until it thickens, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain the pears well and transfer them to a greased, oven-proof dish. Pour the sauce over the pears and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Beat eggs, vanilla sugar, potato starch and milk and pour this over the pears and sprinkle with flaked almonds. Bake the pear dessert in the middle of the oven at 175C/gasmark 4 for about 50 minutes or until the egg batter has set.

Serve lukewarm with ice cream or whipped cream.
