Pear Cobbler

Wow!  This was delicious!  I’m enjoying creating desserts with Ready Brek as it’s an ideal substitute for flour if you’re trying to make something resembling a sponge.  It’s very filling and an eighth of this is plenty.

It’s just 1 point per serving on No Count and 4 points if following WW Flex.  (You can make up a sachet of Bird’s low fat instant custard powder (use skimmed milk on NC or water if tracking) and you can have 60g of the custard for 1 point.)


Ingredients (serves 8):

  • 200g Ready Brek
  • 80g Flora light, melted
  • 1 flat tbsp Splenda (or alternative sweetener for 0sp)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 8 tbsp skimmed milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 to 8 pear halves (I used tinned in natural juice)
  • 8g flaked almonds (optional) 2g per person is free


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
  2. Put the Ready Brek, Splenda and baking powder into a bowl and mix.
  3. In a separate bowl, add the Flora, vanilla extract, milk and egg yolks. Mix this together and then fold into the Ready Brek mixture.
  4. Whisk the egg whites and fold this in too.
  5. Pour into a non-stick baking tin (mine is 9 inches in diameter) and add the pears – push them down slightly into the mixture. (I have since made this with more pear halves which is even better.)
  6. Sprinkle the almonds over the top.
  7. Bake in the oven for about 25 -30 minutes. (Check if it’s cooked all the way through.)
  8. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Christine, thank you for your comment 💕💕 I think it should work ok with the yogurt. Use 80g – 100g, and I’d love to know how you get on 👍🏻💕 Helen xxxx

    1. Hi and thank you Shirley 💕 It’s better with a bit more pear added to it 👌🏻💕 Hope you enjoy it! 🤗💕 Helen xxxxx

  1. Tried this tonight Helen, it’s lovely but I think in future I would make half of the recipe for the base, as it’s quite thick, and put a few more pear halves in. Still enjoyed it though with some sweetened fromage frais and a small squirt of orange spice choc shot. Lovely xx

    1. Hi Val, I know what you mean about the thickness so it would be a good idea to halve the mixture if it’s not quite to your liking. 💕💕 I’ve made it again and added more pear halves which worked well so I’ll amend the recipe to show that at the weekend. Glad you enjoyed it and thank you so much for the feedback. 🤗💕 Helen xxxx
