pear and chocolate pudding

poached pears (enough to make a layer in an oven dish)

3 oz butter/marg

4 oz sugar

1 egg

1.5 oz cocoa powder

4 oz self raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

a little milk

strain the syrup from the pears, and place the pears in the bottom of your dish. Beat together the sugar and butter and then beat in the egg. Now fold in the flour and cocoa and baking powder. Mix in enough milk to make a dropping mixture . Put this pudding batter on top of the pears and bake... until the pudding has risen a little and is cooked.
