  1. 1

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

  2. 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.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 4 Apple(s) Pink lady or similar
    • 4 Pear(s) Conference or similar
  3. 3

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

    For this step you'll need:

    • 2tsp Butter (salted)
    • 8tsp Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 1 Cinnamon stick(s)
  4. 4

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

  5. 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.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 4 Egg(s) (free range)
    • 250ml Milk
    • 8tsp Unrefined golden caster sugar
  6. 6

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

  7. 7

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

    For this step you'll need:

    • 4tsp Unrefined light muscovado sugar
  8. 8

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