6: Chocolate and pear

With a bunch of over ripe pears to use up from my last experiment I turned to the fail safe flavour combination of chocolate and pear. Comments from my blue cheese and pear muffins lead me to believe that I needed something to soak up some pear juice. Research suggested oats and it worked a treat!

  • 140g soft brown sugar
  • 230g self raising flour
  • 70g oatmeal
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 30g cocoa powder
  • 85g margarine, melted and cooled
  • 2 eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • 4 pears, peeled and chopped

Heat the oven to 200C. Mix the dry ingredients together. Mix the wet ingredients together. Add the wet to the dry then fold in the pears. Spoon the mixture into cases and bake for 16 minutes until golden and firm.
