  • Butter a 2 litre heatproof baking dish and arrange the pear quarters on the bottom and sprinkle with half the sugar.
  • Place the milk, brandy, remaining sugar, butter, eggs, ground almonds, almond essence, salt and the flour into a blender in that order.
  • Cover and blend on high for a minute.
  • Pour the batter over the pears and bake in a preheated oven at 175°C for about 40 minutes or a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
