Rustic desserts that pair soft, tart fruit with buttery-crisp toppings are one of most favourite things to bake: they’re easy to throw together, completely foolproof, and always warm and comforting. Recipes abound but this one, is a stand-out thanks to the combination of sweet D’Anjou pears and tart dried cherries, which are plumped up in an orange-scented caramel syrup before baking.
