210 Calories per serving

ingredients

serves 1
1 medium pear
2 fresh dates, stoned
1 small egg white (size 5)
pinch of cream of tartar or salt
2 tablespoons caster sugar
finely grated zest of 1/4 of a lemon

method

1. Remove the core from the pear, but do not peel yet or it will go brown. Reserve the bottom 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) of the core and replace in the bottom of the pear.

2. Chop the dates and fill the pear cavity.

3. Whisk the egg white, cream of tartar and 1 tablespoon of sugar until the mixture peaks, then whisk in the remaining sugar and lemon zest. Keep whisking until the mixture peaks again.

4. Peel the pear and place on an ovenproof plate. Spread the meringue all over the pear and onto the plate, drawing the meringue into peaks.

5. Bake in a preheated oven, Gas Mark 6, 200°C, 400°F for 10 - 12 minutes. Lay the ovenproof dish and pear on a larger plate and serve.
