  • 4 dessert pears
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons low-fat spread or butter, melted
  • 5cm/2in cinnamon stick, broken in half
  • 225g/8oz strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornflour
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4.
  • Pare the skin off the pears, but leave whole with the stems attached.
    Arrange on their sides in a shallow 1.2-litre/2pt casserole dish.
  • In a bowl, whisk together 50ml/2fl oz water, the orange juice and the
    low-fat spread or butter, and pour over the pears. Add the cinnamon
    stick, and bake in the oven for 20–30 minutes until tender, basting from
    time to time. Using a slotted spoon, transfer each pear to a dessert dish,
    reserving the pan juices.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the pan juices with the strawberries and
    bring to the boil.
  • In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon water, the sugar, cornflour and
    lemon juice, stirring to dissolve. Add to the saucepan, stirring constantly,
    and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and cook, stirring constantly, until
    thickened. Remove from the heat, and pour over the pears. Serve
    immediately either plain or with double cream.
