Ingredients

  • 6 ripe pears
  • 100g cook’s dark chocolate, about 50% cocoa solids
  • 1 rounded tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 25g butter, diced, plus extra to grease
For the flapjack crumble
  • 100g plain flour
  • 25g porridge oats
  • 75g demerara sugar
  • 75g cold butter, diced
  • 100g hazelnuts, roughly chopped (you want to keep them nice and chunky)
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup

Step by step

Get ahead
Prepare to the end of step 3 a few hours ahead.
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4.
  2. Peel and core the pears, cut them into chunks and put them in a bowl. Break the chocolate into squares and add them to the bowl with the cinnamon, cornflour, sugar and butter. Toss together, then tip the mix into a buttered ovenproof dish, about 20cm x 28cm (about 2.5-litre capacity). Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of cold water over the top.
  3. Rinse and dry the bowl and now make the crumble in it. Tip in the flour, oats and sugar and add a pinch of salt; mix together. Scatter the butter pieces over the top and, using your fingertips, rub the butter into the dry ingredients until you have something that resembles breadcrumbs – it doesn't matter if you have a few bigger lumps here and there. Stir in the nuts. Set aside at this point if you're making the pud ahead.
  4. Dissolve the golden syrup in a cup with 2 tablespoons of hot water from the kettle then drizzle this over the crumble topping; toss briefly to mix before spooning the crumble over the fruit. Transfer the pudding to the oven to bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden. Leave to stand for 10 minutes before serving with custard
