Makes 6 servings
- 4 large ripe pears, peeled, cored and sliced
- 125g plain flour

Preparation (Some HTML is OK)
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Arrange the pear slices in the base of a buttered 9 by 13 inch dish.
Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl and add the caster sugar, milk, butter and egg. Whisk together for a few minutes until pale in colour, then pour over pears.
To make the caramel sauce, place the brown sugar and syrup into a small pan and add 250ml cold water. Cook over a moderate heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Without stiring, allow to reach boiling point, then remove it from the heat.
Carefully pour the sauce over the pudding, then bake for 35-40 minutes until the sponge is golden. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving with cream or vanilla ice cream.
