  • butter for greasing
  • 10 1/2 oz brioche sliced
  • 5 ripe pears peeled and sliced
  • 15 floz cream
  • 15 floz milk
  • 3 1/2 oz chocolate 70 per cent cocoa
  • 2 oz unrefined caster sugar plus extra for sprinkling
  • 3 eggs


  • Butter a low-sided ovenproof dish. Arrange the slices of brioche and pear alternately in the dish. Warm the cream and milk in a saucepan over a low heat.
  • Break the chocolate into small pieces, add it to the warm milk and cream along with the sugar, and stir until melted. Do not boil.
  • Whisk the eggs and mix them into the warm chocolatey milk, then pour the liquid over the brioche and
  • pear slices, wetting the entire brioche. Press down with a spatula, and leave to stand for 40 minutes.
  • Heat the oven to 160°C/gas 3.
  • Sprinkle the pudding with a little extra sugar, and place it in a bain-marie (that is, place the baking dish in a large roasting tin and fill the tin with hot water to come halfway up the pudding dish).
  • Place in the oven and cook for 45 minutes until soft and golden.
