Remember jaffles? Popular at festivals and events during the eighties and nineties, these delightful round sandwiches can be filled with whatever strikes your fancy. Chef Pieter suggests a delicious Easter version made with hot-cross buns and filled with ricotta, honey and pears. Do try it with the Leopard’s Leap Chardonnay Pinot Noir!

Ingredients

4 hot-cross buns, sliced open

2 pears, cored and sliced lengthwise

250 ml ricotta cheese

salt and pepper to taste

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp honey, plus more for drizzling on top

4 tbsp toasted walnuts, chopped

Method

In a small mixing bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, salt and pepper until combined.

Melt the butter and honey together In a medium-sized frying pan over medium heat.

Place the sliced pears in with the honey-and-butter mixture and cook or

1 – 2 minutes per side or until the pears start to caramelise.

While the pears are caramelising, assemble the hot-cross buns.

Spread some of the ricotta onto one side, then top with caramelised pear slices, chopped walnuts and a drizzle of honey.

Put into a jaffle pan and cook until golden.

Serve immediately.
