Chocolate Baked Pear Pudding

Jo Hodson

Vegan chocolate pear pudding


  1. 2 tbs oat flour (ground oats)
  2. 1 tbs cocoa (or carob flour)
  3. ½ tsp baking powder
  4. 1/3 cup apple puree (or vegan yoghurt or other fruit puree)
  5. 2 tsp syrup of choice or a pinch stevia (to taste)
  6. 1 tsp oil
  7. approx. 1 tbs liquid (only if needed to make a smoother batter)
  8. ———–
  9. 1 small-medium pear
  10. sauce for drizzle


Serves 1.


  • Mix the dry ingredients to small bowl and add the wet ingredients and mix well. The mixture should be thick and fairly smooth (how smooth it is depends on the type of flour used my oat flour gave more texture).
  • Spoon the mix into a large ramekin (or small deep sides dish- there should be min. 1cm space beneath the rim once the pear is pushed in! to allow for a slight rise in the mixture). Push the pear gently into the centre of the ramekin so that is at least half submerged.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes at 180C until the pear is golden and the mixture is very lightly browned.
  • Serve with a drizzle or carob, chocolate, yoghurt, cream as desired.
