Ingredients (8 servings)
  • 8 large apples
  • 8 large pears
  • 150 g cassonade or light brown sugar


The day before

Put the Römertopf clay baker and its lid to soak in water.

On the day

Preheat the oven to 200 °C (gas mark 5 to 6).

Peel 8 large apples and 8 large pears. Quarter them and remove the cores. Then cut each quarter into thin slices.

Weigh 150 g of cassonade or light brown sugar.

Arrange the slices of fruit in the Römertopf in flat regular layers, alternating pears and apples and sprinkling each layer with a little light brown sugar. Fill the whole pot in this way to 2 cm below the edge.

Cover, taking care to wedge the lid tightly and put the Römertopf in the oven for 2 1⁄2 to 3 hours, until the fruit has turned a nice golden colour.

Serve warm or cold.
