Poached Pears with Custard

Poached Pears with Custard

This is a great winter warmer and was just what I was feeling like when I was curled up on the couch the other night when the weather outside was a bit chilly. It’s ridiculously easy to make and takes about 10 mins.

Poached Pears with Custard

Serves 4

Ingredients: 

For the Custard
450g cream
30g honey
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

For the Pears
4 pears
2 star anise
1 cinnamon quill
1L water (or enough to cover the pears)

4 pinches of ground cinnamon to serve (1 per bowl)

Method:

Place all the custard ingredients in a saucepan on a medium heat and cook for 10 mins stirring occasionally.

Peel pears, cut in half and remove the core.

In a separate saucepan, bring water, star anise and cinnamon quill to the boil.

Add pears and poach for about 7 minutes on a low to medium heat or until the pears are just soft enough to poke a skewer through.

Drain pears.

Divide custard into 4 bowls. Place pears on top and sprinkle with ground cinnamon.

Thermomix Instructions: 

Place all the custard ingredients into the mixing bowl and cook for 7min/90°C/speed 3.
