140g unsalted butter, softened, plus more, for greasing
2 (400g) cans pear halves, in juice
180g plus 1 tablespoon plain flour
60g cocoa
280g sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
2 tsps vanilla essence

Preheat the oven to 200°c/gas mark 6 and grease an 22-cm square ovenproof dish with butter.

Drain the pears and arrange them on the base of the prepared dish. Put all the remaining ingredients in a processor and blitz until you have a batter with a soft dropping consistency.

Spread the brown batter over the pears, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 or 10 minutes and then cut into slabs - I cut 2 down and 2 across to make nine slices - and serve with chocolate sauce.
