We had some pears in our last box of produce that I really wanted to use. Then I went back through some recipes I had saved months ago and found this one! I love chocolate and pears, especially after the pears are roasted and tender. Goes perfectly with a gooey, chocolate cake!
- 1/2 cup All-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup Hershey’s Cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 Pears – skinned & Halved (look for smaller sizes)
Pre-heat the oven to 350°F and thoroughly grease 4-5 ramekins with oil.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the egg then add the milk, sugar and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
Fill ramekins 1/2 full with batter. Slowly lower a pealed half pear into each ramekins.
Bake 22 to 25 minutes. Insert a toothpick to check if it has baked fully (it is ready if the toothpick comes out clean) Let it cool completely then enjoy!
