Was your favourite restaurant fully booked today? Or maybe you have planned a romantic meal at home, or perhaps just fancy a quick, snazzy looking dessert?
How about a delicious fruity dessert with a bit of a crunch? Instead of cornflakes, I only had "fruit and fiber" so I used that, still ridiculously tasty though!
If you're not too big on the strong honey flavour, why not try with acacia honey, or syrup?
It would be perfect as a three-course dessert since it is a light dish, and very sweet! For turtledoves and singletons alike!
Crunchy Honey & Almond Pear
(Serves 1, or 2 if served with icecream)
1 pear, cut in two lengthways
A bit of butter for spreading
A drizzle of cinnamon or pumpkin spice
1 tbsp sliced almonds (I chopped up three sugared almonds)
1 tsp honey
- Start by pre-heating the oven to 200°C.
- Slice the pear in two lengthways, and use a knife to criss-cross the surface of it. Spread with butter and sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon or pumpkin spice across is, and bake for about 5 minutes.
- In a small bowl or cup, mix together cornflakes, almond and honey, set aside.
- Take the pear out, and scoop out the centre of the pear, fill with the honey and almond crunch, and bake for a further 5-10 minutes.
Secondly, I thought I'd put up a picture of my breakfast for the occasion:
