  • ½ tsp mixed spice
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 50g cornflake
  • 25g toasted flaked almond


  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180/gas 6. Cut the pears in half lengthways, take out the core (see tip, left), then top with a small knob of butter and a sprinkling of the mixed spice. Sit the pears in a shallow baking dish, then roast for 5 mins until starting to soften. Meanwhile, heat the honey and another knob of butter in a large bowl in the microwave for 30 secs. Toss with the cornflakes and nuts.

  2. Take the pears out of the oven, then top with the cornflake mix. Cook for another 5 mins or until the cornflakes take on a rich golden colour. Allow to cool for a few mins (the cornflakes crisp up again as they cool), then serve warm with ice cream.
