Method

 
Use a spring form pan for this cake or if you don't have one- a normal cake tin will do. Grease with Spray 'n Cook and line with baking paper.

Pour the melted butter in the bottom of the pan and swirl around to coat the whole bottom of the pan. Drizzle the brown sugar and the crumbled fudge over the butter. Now lay the pears in a circle in the bottom of the pan (pip sides up).

For the sponge
Place the self-raising flour, castor sugar, softened butter, baking pwder, eggs and milk in a mixer and beat until the batter is fluffy, white and creamy.

Spoon the batter on top of the pears and lightly tap the pan so that the batter fills all the gaps.

Bake for about 40 -45 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.

Remove form the oven, let the cake rest for a while and then undo the clips of the pan, invert a cake plate onto the cake and turn the cake 'upside down' so that the pears and fudgy goodness is now on the top.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
