Marshmallow Chocolate Pear Pudding

I'm always saying I don't have a sweet tooth, & I don't..however when I'm serving up dessert for friends & family, I don't like to be the odd one out, so I eat it anyway, oh well, no willpower
This pudding I made was scrummy with the marshmallows in the middle

Serves 6
Prep Time 10 mins
Cooking Time 30 mins





Ingredients

1 kg Pears in natural juice
125g Plain (all purpose) flour
125g Caster (superfine) sugar
25g Cocoa powder
150g Butter, softened or low fat spread
1 Tsp Baking powder
2 Tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 Tsp Bicarbonate of soda
2 Large free range eggs
2 Handfuls of mini marshmallows
Method

Drain the juice from the pears and lay them in rows on the base of the dish
Either beat the eggs and add the flour, sugar bicarbonate of soda, baking powder, vanilla extract, cocoa powder and softened butter using a whisk or blitz the ingredients in a food processor
Finally stir in the mini marshmallows
Pour the mix over the pears
Bake for 30 minutes in a preheated oven
Allow to cool slightly before serving
Serve with fresh cream or vanilla ice cream

Before I rush out and buy the ingredients for that disgusting(ly delicious sounding) dessert, could you explain why there are 2 leavening agents in the recipe?
As baking powder already contains bicarb soda along with cream of tartar, it seems like overkill. But of course this recipe may really need the extra soda.

I'm looking for something to serve at a small birthday party for tomorrow that isn't cake. I think that my gluten free flour blend would work in this and there is no dairy so everyone can eat it.

Thanks Les!

Yes it does need both, it rises right out the oven
