Banana & Pear Chocolate Fudge Pie

(All measures in British Imperial)

Pastry
• 2 tbsp Icing Sugar
• <6 oz Self-Raising Flour
* I ditch the sugar in the measuring bowl, then weigh so both that and the flour together make 6 oz.
• 3 oz Butter
• Water
> as per previous pastry instructions.

Filling
• 4 oz Butter, melted
• 2 Eggs, whisked until even colour & consistency.
> mix together with whisk
• 5 oz Dark Brown Sugar
• Sliced Vanilla Pod to taste
> mix in
• 1.5 oz Plain Flour
• 1.5 oz Cocoa Powder
> sift onto above, then fold in
• 2 Conference Pears: peeled, cored and diced.
• 1 Banana, peeled and diced.
> fold into above.
> pour into pastry case.
> bake at 180C for 30 mins (this comes out gooey in the middle: I like it like that, bake for a little longer if that’s not your thing)

Consume with gusto! :D
(I have it warm with double cream ;))

Looks and sounds amazing!
Thank you.
I took the filling from an American pecan nut pie recipe, reconfigured it based on what I had that needed using up (the riper the fruit the better it turns out)... then used an adaptation of a cheesecake base for the pastry :) been making it since 2006/7 (it was winter, but can’t remember which side of christmas)
 
Sounds like the work of a pro! I try to stick to the recipe since i am still learning to bake well. My family (my dad especially) is very strict about healthy living and doesn't eat much sugar, so i am pretty much self taught.

I just leap into experimenting without thinking about it, usually “forced“ experiment around what’s in the cupboard: sometimes it’s delicious, sometimes it’s a disaster (green lentil and carrot pie for instance: that didn’t work!)
