An impressive and light dinner party dessert. Pears are poached and paired with a delicious apricot sauce, then set alight with a generous glug of rum. The rum caramelises the sugar, and brings out the flavour of the pears.
hey do you use white or dark rum? cheers - 04 Jul 2012
Really good and great presentation! Everyone loved the flames! I served it w/ the option of ice cream or table cream. The table cream was actually my favorite! I will definitely make this again! - 19 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
wow, this was excellent! my guests really enjoyed it. I've made it twice now. first time i served it with vanilla icecream and shortbread/buscuits because i thought the dessert needed something. But the second time we just ate it with ice cream. I will definetly be making this again. Even though i don't like pears too much this was very good. - 18 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
