Absolutely irresistible!essert – tender freshly baked pears drizzled with salted sweet caramel sauce. Absolutely irresistible! These Salted Caramel Baked Pears are an absolute dream – sweet, soft and covered in beautiful salted caramel sauce. They are the perfect dessert. Yes, yes, the salted caramel isn’t the healthiest thing ever, but as this is a fruit based dessert it’s not the worst thing you can eat. Pears are packed with vitamin C, K and potassium."

Ingredients

  • 1 medium pear
  • 25 grams sugar
  • 12 grams butter, plus a little for basting
  • 15 milliliters double cream
  • 1 large pinch salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F Cut a small slice from the base of the pear – just enough so it will stand upright properly. Use an apple corer or small knife to cut into the underside and remove the seeds. Brush the pear with a little butter and add to the oven. Cook for 30 minutes.

  2. Make the caramel sauce. I’ve added some tips above which are definitely worth reading first if this is your first time making caramel. First add the sugar to a small saucepan over a medium heat. The pan should be small enough that your sugar covers the entire base of the pan (with up to a few cm thickness), but still will leave a good few inches above the sugar.

  3. Melt the sugar slowly. Do not step away, do not make a cup of tea, do not try and get a head start on the washing up. Once the sugar starts to melt then stir, stir, stir. Do not let it burn. Once it has reached a golden amber colour then remove from the heat.

  4. Stir the butter into the sugar – it will froth and bubble. This is why it’s important to use a pan that is large enough that it won’t bubble or flick out as you stir it. Keep stirring until it’s mixed well. Add the cream to the pan and stir everything together until fully combined and smooth.

  5. Serve with the salted caramel drizzled over the pear – absolute bliss!
