The renovation and the move left me with no energy. Finally there was the long waited, special day on Saturday! We packed our belongings and overloaded we crossed the doorstep of our new apartment. I’m learning my new way to work and how to solve things in cabinets. Slowly I’m coming back to cooking because finally I have a kitchen!
I started with a dessert to make our living here sweet!
Ingredients (makes 4-5 portions)
100 g (3.5 oz) wheat flour
70 g (2.5 oz) brown sugar
1 tbsp dark cocoa
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 cup milk
70 g (2.5 oz) dark chocolate
50 g (2 oz) butte
2 – 3 medium pears
Peel pears and cut them cores, drizzle with lemon juice to preserve from becoming dark. In a bowl mix together flour, cornstarch, salt and cocoa. In another bowl whisk eggs with sugar until fluffy, add the flour mixture and milk gradually whisking all the time. Add slightly cooled melted chocolate with butter. Pour batter into the small baking dishes, on top of each place a wedge of pear. Bake for 30 min. in preheated oven to 175 oC (350 F). Serve warm (not hot).
