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 brown sugar
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.
Pour onto pears and bake 35 minutes or until golden brown
Serve with cream or ice-cream.
