Imagine coming home to a warm, chocolaty, homemade dessert at the end of a long winter’s day! The slow cooker keeps this cake moist and rich-tasting without eggs, dairy, or too much fat.
Coat 2-quart slow cooker with cooking spray, and arrange pear halves on bottom.
Sift flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into large bowl.
Whisk together cocoa powder, vinegar, 1/4 cup reserved pear syrup, remaining 2 Tbs. brown sugar, and 1/2 cup water in glass measuring cup. Add margarine, and heat in microwave on high power 3 minutes, or until boiling. Whisk until smooth, then stir cocoa mixture into flour mixture. Stir in vanilla extract.
Spread batter over pears, and cook in slow cooker on low 4 to 6 hours. Remove lid, and cool 15 minutes. To serve: Scoop out cake, and set on plate with pears on top.
