Sweet, pears and fragrant warming spices, the delicious Pear Tarte Tatin will definitely have your guests coming back for a second slice!

Ingredients

125g caster sugar, 40g unsalted butter, 1/2 tsp ground ginger, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 3 large pears, 375g all-butter puff pastry, double cream to serve.

Method

  1. pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°/gas 6.
  2. Place a frying proof with an ovenproof handle over a medium heat. Add sugar and heat to a lovely caramel colour stirring constantly.
  3. Chop your butter into cubes, then add to the pan with the ginger and cinnamon and stir.
  4. Peel and core the pears, cut into wedges, then place into your caramel and spoon over. Turn the heat down and cook for 5-10 minutes until pears are tender.
  5. remove from the heat and cool, then arrange your pears into a tart pan.
  6. Roll out the pastry to around 5mm thick and cut a disc shape slightly bigger than your tart pan.
  7.  Carefully place your disc on top of the pears and caramel, then carefully tuck it around your pears and down the side of your pan.
  8. Bake for 30-40 minutes until pastry is golden and puffed up.
  9. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edges and place a large plate on top and turn the tart onto the plate. Serve with double cream or vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
