Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease a 2-litre capacity baking dish.

For the pudding, whisk the eggs and sugar together until the mixture is pale and light. Add the melted butter and beat slowly to combine.

Sift the flour, almond flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt together. Add the dry ingredients and milk to the egg mixture in alternate stages. Beat on a low speed until the batter is smooth.

Arrange the pears on the base of the baking dish and nestle the chocolate chunks in between. Spoon the batter over and spread to cover the fruit. Bake for 35–40 minutes.
