Chocolate and Pear Pudding

I have mentioned several times that I always buy the large bags of apples and/or pears then keep them in the freezer for when I want to make a pudding, pie or cake.

Yesterday was just such an occasion – stumped for something sweet (you all know that OH has to have a pudding every day or he feels he is being neglected) I took two pears from the freezer and a jar of chocolate spread from the cupboard.

2 tbsp Chocolate spread
2 pears sliced into wedges
45g butter
45g brown sugar
1 egg
80g plain flour
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease an ovenproof dish.

Arrange pears in an ovenproof dish and dollop the chocolate over the top, spread as best you can but it is a bit gooey, however it will melt once in the oven.


Cream together butter and sugar, add the egg, and beat. Sift the flour and baking powder into the mix and add the vanilla extract. Stir in enough milk until the mixture resembles thick cream.DSC07174

Pour onto pears and bake 35 minutes or until golden brown



Serve with cream or ice-cream.
