Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Saute the pears until caramelised; set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and pepper; form a well in the centre. In a small, separate bowl beat the egg with the milk and pour into the dry ingredients; mix well.
Gently fold pears into the batter.
Heat the oil in a deep fat fryer to 180 degrees C. Drop batter by rounded spoonfuls into hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Drain briefly on kitchen towels. Serve hot.
