The feast goes on: Christmas Pud Baked Pears

Food stylist: Louise Kenney. Props stylist: Charlie Phillips

A second life for the Christmas pudding or cake that is doused with honey and lemon and baked to a fudgey centre in pear halves.

Serves 4

4 comice-style pears

1-2 tsp vegetable oil

8 tbsp crumbled Christmas pudding or cake (approx 120g)

50g honey

1 tbsp lemon juice

20g unsalted butter

coconut yogurt or soured cream, to serve

  •  Preheat the oven to 220C/ 200C fan/gas 7. Halve the pears lengthways – you can leave the stalk attached – and scoop out the core to leave a crater.
  •  Heat a large nonstick frying pan over a medium-high heat, drizzle a teaspoon of oil over the base and colour the cut side of the pear halves for a few minutes, if necessary in two batches (adding more oil), then arrange cut-side up in a large baking dish. Fill the craters with the Christmas pudding.
  •  Melt the honey, lemon juice and butter together and drizzle over the pears, soaking the pudding, then bake for 20 minutes.
  •  Serve with a dollop of coconut yogurt or soured cream.
