Method

  1. Peel and halve the pears and scoop out the core with a teaspoon. Lay the halves in a shallow microwaveable dish, cut side down, along with the cranberries. Pour 2 tbsp of the maple syrup over and cover with cling film. Microwave on High for 3 mins until softened, stirring halfway through. Uncover and leave to cool for a few mins. Stir the pecan nuts through the syrup.
  2. Spoon into serving dishes, drizzle extra maple syrup, if you like, and serve with yogurt.

Unbelievably easy and quick. Looks sophisticated. Tastes delicious. Didn't have cranberries so used a snack pack of dried fruit and it worked out just fine.

Lovely: I have made this twice now and its a fabulously simple, quick and delicious dessert. I also used tinned pears and drizzled most of the syrup from the tin over them as well just before baking and this gave a lovely, sticky sauce to spoon over the icecream I served with it.

tastes great! works just as well with tinned pears, and honey instead of the maple syrup!

Love this recipe for using up pears so quick and very tasty. I have used raisins and walnuts when I have not had cranberries or pecans and equally as tastey. A firm favourite.

I tried substituting honey for the maple syrup and it was really nice! I also added some prunes with the cranberries - I think any dried fruit would be a great addition/substitution.
