The instruction how to make Chocolate and pear muffins with chocolate syrup

  1. Preheat oven to 180u00b0C. Brush ten 150ml-capacity Texas muffin pans with melted butter to lightly grease. Use a melon baller to scoop out the base and core from each pear.
  2. Place the water, vanilla and half the sugar in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Add the pears and cook, turning occasionally, for 10 minutes or until the pears are tender. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the pears to a plate to drain.
  3. Whisk the cocoa powder into the syrup. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the syrup thickens slightly.
  4. Meanwhile, place the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (make sure the bowl doesnt touch the water). Use a metal spoon to stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.
  5. Add the combined flours, egg, extra cocoa powder and remaining sugar to the chocolate mixture and stir until well combined.
  6. Spoon mixture among prepared pans. Gently press the pears into the centres. Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the muffin comes out clean. Set aside for 15 minutes to cool.
  7. Carefully remove from the pans and divide among serving plates. Drizzle over the chocolate syrup to serve.
