  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas mark 4. Arrange the pear slices in the base of a buttered 1.5-litre ovenproof dish.

  2. 2

    Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl and add the caster sugar, milk, butter and egg. Whisk together for 2-3 minutes until pale in colour, then pour over the pears.

  3. 3

    To make the caramel sauce, place the brown sugar and syrup in a small pan and add 250ml cold water. Cook over a moderate heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Without stirring, allow to reach boiling point, then remove from the heat.
