Method

  1. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Butter a 30 x 20cm baking dish. Mix the first four ingredients together. Melt the treacle, butter and sugar together in a large saucepan, then stir in the dry ingredients, half of the chopped ginger, the egg and milk to give a smooth batter.
  2. Spoon into the baking dish, then sit the pear halves in the batter. Dot more butter over each pear half and sprinkle with a little more sugar. Bake for 1 hr until risen all over and a skewer inserted into the middle of the pudding comes out clean.
  3. To serve, scatter the rest of the ginger over the fruit, then drizzle all over with syrup from the jar. Serve in rectangles with custard, below.

I used tinned pear halves for speed and that worked well. I also tried a version where I used golden syrup instead of treacle and peaches instead of pears, very yummy!!! A regularly requested pudding in our household. It does easily make enough for 8, so i also halve the recipe and use a 20cm square tin if I want to make enough for 4.

We liked this even though we ran out of treacle and so used molasses & golden syrup instead. We also added some mixed spice and added to the lovely smells and tastes. Enjoy!

Very good, especially with the qiuck custard. Thought the pieces were quite large and very filling, so could easily make it serve more than 8.
