This time last year...

I had this recipe posted last September. I've been slack these last few weeks - although I have been baking I've not been photographing, so I'm being lazy and repeating last years post for spring baking. Excuse me if you've seen this before.

So Chocolate and Pear Self Saucing Pudding anyone?

2 pears - peeled and sliced
100g butter
3/4 brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons cocoa powder

2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tablespoon cornflour

Preheat oven to 180deg C. Grease ovenproof dish and line with sliced pear.

Cream butter, add sugar, egg and vanilla.
Fold in mixed flour, baking powder and cocoa. When mixed place in dish over the pear - spread evenly.

Mix the second amount of sugar with the cocoa and cornflour and sprinkle evenly over the top. Using the underside of a large spoon, pour the boiling water over the top.

Place in oven and bake for 35mins.

When baked, dust with icing sugar and serve. Eat while hot!

The good news is that I have plenty of recipes up my sleeve that I've been working on, so I'm really excited to share them over the next month or so.

Hey Mon! I drew your name in the candy book giveaway. Would you mind sending me your mailing address via email? heather@sprinklebakes.com

I have no clue how long it will take to get to you from the US - shipping says 12-16 days - maybe you'll get it in time for the holidays. :)
