❧ a taste of autumn

it's a good thing when you are given
windfall fruits:
time to bake and create:
some of you may remember this recipe ~
this is a new and less fiddly version:
it's a winner:

you will need ....
115g butter {slightly softened}
100g caster sugar
60g melted chocolate
60ml milk
3 eggs ~ lightly beaten
125g plain flour
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 or 2 pears, sliced

preheat your oven to 180°c / gas 4:
line and prepare a 20cm square cake tin

cream together the sugar and butter
either by hand or with a mixer
until light and fluffy:
add the eggs a little at a time
mixing well between:
stir in the melted chocolate & milk:
then sift in the flour, baking and cocoa powders:
try not to over mix at this point:
pour into your prepared tin
and adorn with the slices of pear:
bake for 30~35 minutes until firm to the touch:
cool on a rack:
as you can see, I didn't peel the pears
as the skin is soft and good:
deliciously moist and chocolatey:

proper autumn comfort:
