Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a
small pan, add the brown sugar, and stir over low heat until blended. Pour
into a square cake pan and arrange the pear halves, round side down, in the
pan; set aside. The pear halves may also be sliced and spread evenly over
the bottom of the pan. Mix the flour, baking powder, ginger, salt and sugar
in a bowl. Melt the remaining 8 tablespoons of butter in a small pan.
Remove from the heat , add the milk and egg, and beat well. Add to the
flour mixture and beat until smooth. Pour over the pears and bake for about
25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the pan for about
10 minutes, then turn out onto a serving plate. Serve with whipped cream,
if you wish.
