This dessert is a Christmas compôte that's a cross between roasted fruit and mulled wine.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4.

  2. Put everything into a shallow, ovenproof dish and bake for 45 minutes, stirring 2 or 3 times. The wine will slowly poach the fruit, leaving it intact and gloriously purple. Allow to cool slightly before serving with a dollop of low-fat crème fraîche, if using.


  • 3 apples, peeled, cored and cut into eighths
  • 3 pears, peeled, cored and quartered

  • 250g/9oz frozen black cherries
  • 50g/1¾oz raisins
