Chocolate and Pear Pudding

Served straight from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, this chocolate and pear pudding is a delicious winter dessert and fast becoming a family favourite. It's relatively easy to make and equally as tasty reheated the following day ... that's if there is any left over!

4 pears sliced (you can used tinned instead if you wish)
175g butter, melted
300g caster sugar
3 eggs
75g plain flour
45g cocoa
100g dark chocolate


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease an ovenproof dish, approx 9" by 15" in size
  • Mix together the butter and sugar and then add the eggs
  • Sift in the flour and cocoa and combine well
  • Place the slices of pear into the ovenproof dish and pour the mixture on top
  • Chop up the chocolate and sprinkle it on top of the mixture then push it lightly into the mixture with a wooden spoon to prevent it from burning
  • Cook for around 35 minutes until crisp on the outside but gooey in the centre. Leave for longer but cover with foil if you prefer a more firm, cake textured dessert.
