These poached pears with salted caramel sauce make an elegant dessert that's ideal for a special dinner for two, or an occasion such as New Year's Eve. What's more, this easy dessert recipe is cooked all in one pan.

  1. Put the sugar, white wine, 250ml water and the vanilla into a small saucepan set over a high heat. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5-6 mins until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Trim the bases of the pears slightly (so they will stand upright when you serve them). Lay the pears in the pan; the liquid should cover them. Reduce the heat to low and simmer gently for 40-45 mins until tender. Remove the pears from the pan and leave to cool slightly.
  3. Just before serving, heat the caramel sauce in a small pan set over a medium heat until warmed through.
  4. To serve, divide the salted caramel between 2 serving dishes and top each with a pear. Pour over the cream.
