Pear Quarters in Clear Fruit Juice

Grown under the sun in the Hawke's Bay orchards, Wattie's pears are hand-picked and then packed at the peak of their flavour for natural goodness.

Method
Step 1
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 22cm square cake tin with baking paper.
Step 2
Melt butter and stir in sifted cocoa until smooth. Set aside to cool.
Step 3
Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla extract until thick and creamy. Fold in cocoa mixture, ground almonds, baking powder and chocolate. Pour into prepared cake tin.
Step 4
Place the drained and chopped pears over the top and gently press into the mixture.
Step 5
Bake for 35-40 minutes until cooked. The centre will still be a little gooey and the top firm. Allow to cool in the tin before cutting into pieces. Serve dusted with a little sifted icing sugar.
