This delicious apple and pear gratin is perfect as a warming dessert served with ice cream.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6).  

  2. Wash and peel apples and pears, before cutting them into quarters. It’s a good idea to do this just before you’re ready to cook so the fruit doesn't go brown.

  3. Melt the butter in a pan over a gentle heat. Add half the sugar, all the fruit and the cinnamon stick.

  4. Cook over a low heat for 10 minutes until the apples and pears have softened, stirring gently occasionally.

  5. Now remove the cinnamon stick and pour the mixture into a gratin dish, or split it between four individual dishes. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and then stir in the milk and the remaining sugar.

  6. Pour the milk, egg and sugar mix into the gratin dish(es) and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

  7. Once cooked through, sprinkle a little muscovado sugar over the top and grill for a few minutes for a crunchy caramel crust.

  8. Serve with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream for a fresh and warming dessert.
