Baked coffee apples or pears


This recipe with apples or pears makes a delicious dessert – especially for passionate coffee-drinkers!

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 6 large apples or pears
  • 250 g cane sugar
  • 60 walnuts
  • 2 small cups strong coffee
  • Milk or cream
  • Butter

Peel the fruit and carefully remove the cores. Be careful not to damage the fruit. Fill the core space with a mixture of 80 g of sugar and the chopped walnuts. Butter a baking pan and place the apples or pears in it – upright and quite tightly packed. To make the syrup, heat 100 g of sugar and coffee for some minutes in a saucepan until they are well mixed. Cover the apples or pears with this syrup and then put the baking pan in the oven. Collect the juice from the bottom of the pan and pour it over the fruit from time to time. When the apples and pears are almost baked, sprinkle them with the remaining sugar and caramelise it.
