The title should have been pear upside down chocolate pudding.As it looked too long to
fit i had to use the snip tool.
It is an eggless dessert and an awesome treat for vegans.The soft pear is one of my
favourites ,as it works wonders when used in desserts and cakes.This time i mixed it
with red wine and it was rich,moist and extremely delicious.

Now for the recipe.
For the base
3-4 soft pear sliced
1 tsp.lime juice
3/4-1 cup red wine
1/2 cup brown sugar
a piece of cinnamon
For the cake
115 gm flour
150 gm brown sugar
40 gm cocoa powder (8 tsp)
3/4 tsp coffee powder
3/4 tsp.baking soda
45 ml coconut oil
180 ml hot water
a pinch of salt
flaked almonds to sprinkle on the top after baking (toasted almonds will be fine too)
Mix all the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately ,and then mix together.
The water you pour should be compulsorily hot as this contributes to the rich dark color.
Grease a preferred cake tin.Mix the pear slices with the lime juice and arrange (you can
use halves of pear too without slicing)in tin.
Add wine,sugar, and cinnamon.Pour cake mix over the pear and bake in a moderate
oven (*preferably a water bath) for 35-40 mins .(180 degrees)
Cool and turn it upside down. Decorate with flaked almonds .It can be served warm with
cream,a blob of ice-cream if you like.
I like it plain …!
*A water bath – when the cake is baked in a tray of water inside the oven.
you can also a place a cup of water inside the oven if you are not able to use the bigger tray with water.
