Chocolate Pear Pudding Cake
Servings: 6 to 8
Adapted from Nigella Larson

1 1/4 sticks (10 Tbsp.) butter, softened
2 (14-ounce) cans pear halves, in juice
3/4 c. plus 1 Tbsp. flour
1/4 c. cocoa
1 c. plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and grease an 8-inch square ovenproof dish with cooking spray.

Drain the pears and arrange them on the base of the prepared dish. Put all the remaining ingredients in a food processor and blitz until you have a batter with a soft dropping consistency.

Spread the brown batter over the pears, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 or 10 minutes and then cut into slabs.

NOTES: This is such a great dessert. Pantry staples come together really quickly to make something surprising and delicious. We serve this with ice cream. YUM!
