Hot Pear Gratin Dessert

Hot Pear Gratin Dessert

This is an easy and stylish dessert made with pear compote. Enjoy the sweet-tart sauce oozing out from inside.

Ingredients: 1 oval ramekin (16×10×3cm)

Pear compote (Recipe ID:1272146)
3 pieces
Egg yolks
Granulated sugar
40 g
1 tablespoon
Lemon juice
1/2 to 1 tablespoon


1. Cut the pears from the compote in half lengthwise. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2. Put the egg yolks and granulated sugar in a bowl over hot water, and whip until thickened. Add the rum and lemon juice.
3. Line the ramekin with the sliced pears, and pour in the egg mixture. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, until the surface browns.
4. When it's done, the surface becomes like a soufflé, with a nice golden brown color.
5. Enjoy it right out of the oven with a spoon and the sweet-tart sauce will ooze out!
6. I adjusted the lemon juice to the amount of 1/2 to 1 tablespoon on 2011.10.11. If you don't like it too sour, please use a 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice.
7. Please try this hot dessert on a cold winter day.
