Marble Pear Traybake

I could not get this recipe to cook. I put it in for the time the recipe said and it was still uncooked in the middle. I ended up putting it back three times and turning it over before it was fully cooked. I think if I was to make it again I would put some of the cake mixture in the bottom, put the pear in the middle and cover with more batter then cook it to stop the bottom from being soggy. Otherwise it was a very moist and tasty cake.

Marble Pear Traybake (from Wellsway School)

100g caster sugar
100g soft margarine
2 eggs
100g self raising flour
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pear (fresh or tinned)

Preheat oven to 180ÂșC. Grease and line a baking tin.

Cream the sugar and margarine together.

In a small bowl beat the egg with a fork. Add the beaten egg a little at a time, to the margarine and sugar.

Sieve the flour and baking powder into mixture and fold in using a metal spoon.

Core and chop the pear into small pieces, Scatter pieces of pear into the lined caked tin.

Spoon half of the plain mixture into the tin. Stir in the cocoa to the remaining cake mixture.

Spoon the chocolate mixture into the baking tin and then swirl the two mixtures together to create a marble effect.

Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes golden brown and springy to the touch.
