PEAR CHOCOLATE PUDDING


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.

INGREDIENTS

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

1 tsp.vinegar

180 ml hot water

a pinch of salt

flaked almonds to sprinkle on the top after baking (toasted almonds will be fine too)

METHOD 

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.
