Cooking time: 
15-30 minutes
Serves: 
4
Preparation time: 
30-45 minutes
Ingredients: 

 

  • 250ml JUST MILK
  • 4 Pink Lady apples (or similar) 
  • 4 Conference pears (or similar)
  • 1 cinnamon stick 
  • 16 tsps caster sugar 
  • 2 tsps Stork tub
  • 4 free range eggs 
  • A few teaspoons of brown sugar
Method: 

 

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. 
  • 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!
  • Melt the Stork in a pan over a gentle heat. Add half the sugar, all the fruit and the cinnamon stick.
  • Cook over a low heat for 10 minutes until the apples and pears have softened, stirring gently occasionally.
  • Now remove the cinnamon stick and pour mixture into a gratin dish. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and then stir in the JUST MILK and the remaining sugar. 
  • Pour the milk, egg and sugar mix into the gratin dish and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Once cooked through, sprinkle a little brown sugar over the top and grill for a few minutes for a crunchy caramel crust.
  • Serve with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream for a fresh and warming dessert.
