This recipe came from my craving of baked apples one day. I remember when my grandma used to make them and they’d come piping hot from the oven, all golden and mushy and delicious. I didn’t have apples the day the craving struck so I did it with pears instead. It delivers all the ooey gooey goodness of baked apples that we all remember and yet has its own unique taste that just makes it better somehow. My kids now will always remember the deliciousness of the baked cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar mixed with the goodness of the fruit. But they’ll have a special memory attached to it because they’ll remember that mum did it with pears. Just another special way to put a twist on things.
And I don’t bake. So I’m usually hesitant to attempt anything that has the word ‘baked’ in the title, or listed in the instructions. But there’s something about baking fruit and adding in melted butter that just makes it more like cooking than baking to me. Yummy, cheap, and the wonderful smell that this baking dessert gives off just proves once again why this dessert can be so very special!
