Microwave Baked Pears

After baking those apples recently I decided I need to make an improvisation so the dessert could be served faster, which made me think of using the microwave instead of the oven.
You can make these in a snap and you will love me for it !
Oh, and because there is so much pectin in the fruit, especially in the peel, I decide to make a quick reduction and I ended up with a nice thick syrup that I poured all over my delicious pears.
Served with ice-cream was to die for !

2 pears, on the ripe side
2 TBSP brown sugar
1 TBSP honey
1/2 teaspoon good cinnamon
some ice-cream if you wish

Wash, then halve and core the pears and set aside.
Choose a deep plate or a large bowl or a small Pyrex dish that would hold the 4 pieces of pear and the juices they will release, and it would be microwave safe.
Place the fruit in the dish and set aside.
Combine the brown sugar with the cinnamon and spoon it all over the pears, then drizzle the honey on top.

Microwave for 2 to 4 minutes, in 30 seconds increments.
They should be ready when they look soft and baked.
Remove and place in your serving plate and cook the juice the pears left in the pan - for 2 to 5 more minutes until it resembles honey consistency.

The pectin in the pear juice along with the sugar and the molasses will all help thicken the liquid.
Spoon over the pears when it has cooled down a bit and serve with ice-cream.
Yummy !


  1. Thanks! I bit into a pear and it was a bit hard so I thought I would bake it, but didn't want to use the oven so I searched for a microwave recipe and found yours. I added some butter to the recipe, but otherwise followed your directions. Turned out great! Thanks!!
