Ginger and Lemon Grilled Pears

Standard

I found this recipe in one of those “recipes of the month” at Waitrose and surprisingly they turned out fantastically scrumptious and are so easy to make. (perfect dinner party dessert)

INGREDIENTS:

– 15g butter
– 1tbsp caster sugar
– Grated zest and jice of ½ lemon
– 2 Perfectly Ripe Pears, peeled, halved and cored
– 2 long slices Waitrose Ginger and Lemon cake, each cut in half
– 4tbsp mascarpone

METHOD:

– Preheat the grill.
– Put the butter in a small pan with the sugar, lemon zest and juice. Heat gently until melted.
– Place the pears on a baking tray and brush with the lemon mixture.
– Grill the pears, turning once and brushing with the glaze, for 6–8 minutes until golden brown.
– Add the slices of cake to the tray for the last 2 minutes.
– Grill on both sides, then drizzle with any remaining glaze and spread with the mascarpone.
– Place the cooked pears on top of each slice.
– Serve immediately
