My sister Carol gave me this recipe after she made it for us one night. I thinks its a Nigella recipe. Its so good and has been a favourite anytime we have a get together. It’s fantastic either with raspberries and ice-cream or slightly warm with creammmmm…

chocolate pear pudding

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 x 415g cans pear halves in juice
  • 125g plain flour
  • 25g cocoa powder
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 150g soft butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Serves 6-8
METHOD
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6 and grease a 22cm square ovenproof dish with butter.
  2. Drain the pears and arrange them on the base of the dish.
  3. Put all the remaining ingredients in a food processor and blitz until you have a batter with a soft dropping consistency.
  4. Spread the brown batter over the pears, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Let stand out of the oven for 5 or 10 minutes and then cut into slabs – I cut 2 down and 2 across to make 9 slices – and serve with chocolate sauce.

This recipe can also be made in individual small tins for a “fancy” desert, I also like slicing the pears thinly and arranging neatly in a circle when using small round tins. Delicious recipe which I have made on several occasions ….. and will again !
