1 x 820g tin pear quarters in syrup
150 gram butter, softened
1/2 cup caster sugar
3 eggs
1 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa
Preheat the oven to 150c.Lightly grease a 4-cup capacity ovenproof dish.

Drain the pears and arrange in the greased dish.
To make the sponge:in a large bowl beat tog the butter and the caster sugar until light and fluffy.Beat in the eggs one at a time.
Stift tog the plain flour, baking powder and cocoa .Using a metal spoon, gently fold into the creamed mixture.
Spoon the sponge mixture over the pears, making sure the pears are completely covered.Smooth out the mixture using the back of a spoon.
Bake in preheated oven for 30-35mins.The centre should still be a little fudgy when tested with a skewer.Serve warm or cold with whipped cream.

I made this today in the crockpot on high for 2 hrs.Very nice.Next time will just do it on low though so it's a bit more fudgy in the middle.
