Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
HOW TO REMOVE THE CORE

To remove the core from a ripe pear, halve the fruit lengthways, then simply dig a teaspoon into the flesh and scoop out the pips and any fibrous bits.

MAKE IT CANADIAN

MAPLE & PECAN PEARS Heat 2 tbsp maple syrup with butter instead of the honey, then toss with the cornflakes and a handful chopped pecan nuts. Top the pears with the cornflake mix, then bake as before. Drizzle with some more maple syrup to serve.
