Pear and Chocolate pudding

Pear and Chocolate pudding

This is so simple and requires no messing around just popping everything in one bowl for a quick blitz then taddah its all ready! Goes down a storm at dinner parties too and with a slab of ice-cream. I nabbed this recipe of good old Nigella and its never failed me.

See the recipe below:

Ingredients:

  • 2 can of pear halves in juice
  • 125 grams plain flour
  • 25 grams cocoa powder
  • 125 grams caster sugar
  • 150 grams soft butter (plus extra for greasing)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ยผ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

How to make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ยฐC/gas mark 6/400ยบF and grease a 22cm / 8 inch square ovenproof dish with butter.
  2. Drain the pears and arrange them on the base of the dish, my mums better at arranging them than me but i try to create a circle, flower like theme.
  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.
  5. 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 I always look to serve with a big slab if ice cream.

Enjoy
