Chocolate Pears Cake

As always, aim for the high quality ingredients that make the difference. Look for the sweetest pears that will sink in the cocoa dough in a perfect hug with the dark chocolate chips!

Moreover, the pears are a versatile fruit: they are great to combine with savory taste. As an Italian proverb says: “Do not let the farmer know how good is the cheese with the pears”. Indeed, when the fruit is ripe, its sweetness combines perfectly with every dessert.

We chose dark chocolate to balance the pears sugariness.

Chocolate Pears Cake

We love seasonal products, so look for the perfect sweet pears at your local farmers market or grocery store. For the Fluffy Chocolate and Pears Cake we got the Decana Pears, rounded with a short and thick petiole. Also the Kaiser Pears fit the recipe, the ones that are the “classic” shape of a pear: brown skin, juicy pulp, with a taste that alternates sweet and sour and a compactness tending to crunchy.

The Fluffy Chocolate and Pears Cake is a perfect right treat for every occasion: as a dessert or with your tea, but it is also great for a sweet breakfast or a snack.
