Oh, pears and pecans, the taste of winter. Adding sour cream to your cake mix will give it a soft and fluffy texture. Our pear and pecan cake is perfect, served straight from the oven with some cream.
They are quick and easy to make, oh-so-delicious and comforting. Is there any better winter dessert than humble spiced poached pears? Ours are even more special because you can poach them in the oven, which means less time spent standing in front of the stove for you.
We take the humble breadcrumb-and-cheese topped baked gratin and give it an earthy autumnal twist. Turnips are really cheap and they are surprisingly delicious and add the best texture ever once cooked. We also love them in soups and stews, but this pear and turnip gratin is must for meat-free Monday this week.
