Chocolate and Pear Cake

Hello my friends!

Lately I’ve been deep in a chocolate and pears phase. I just love those tastes combination! I already gave you a Chocolate and Pear Poundcake recipe a while ago. Today, it will be a chocolat and pear cake, ready to be baked in only 10 minutes that will make everyone very happy around the table!

To tell you the truth, my 10 year old son asks for this very chocolate and pear cake at each birthday! Isn’t it the best proof? This chocolate and pear cake is a delight! Slightly crunchy on the sides and deliciously melting at heart…

Besides, it’s a seasonal cake (you know I like to bake and cook seasonal products 😉 ), our grocery stores are full of pears lately, maybe some of us have pears in their own gardens. So it’s time to enjoy those babies!

This cake is the perfect treat for teatime with friends or family. And it’s a great afternoon snack for the children, whatever the occasion, it’s so much better than opening the industrial cakes cupboard.

I won’t tell you that it is a light cake, but give a slice to your kids and they will be satiated.

You never really know what is inside industrial cakes, your kids need to eat a dozen before saying they aren’t hungry anymore. And don’t get me started on their price and all the packaging that goes with it…

To put it in a nutshell, If you have the 10 minutes mandatory to prepare this chocolate and pear cake, don’t hesitate any longer…

Just do it! The recipe, Chef!

    J’adore cette recette! Devenue un incontournable pour “passer” quelques poires oubliées dans la coupe! Et une bonne raison pour y glisser du chocolat ?

    Simple et excellent ! Il m’a fallu le cuire plus longtemps (15-20 min de plus) mais c’est sûrement parce que j’avais utilisé mon four en chaleur conventionnelle et pas chaleur tournante.
    Merci pour cette recette !

      Merci Céline. Oui le temps de cuisson varie en fonction du mode choisi. La chaleur tournante est recommandée ici 😉
