Heavenly triple chocolate treat with pears.


  • 100gr of dark chocolate (70% at least)
  • 100ml of double cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 90gr muscovado sugar
  • 50ml of vegetable oil
  • 225gr flour
  • 120g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 25gr of baking soda or baking powder
  • 90gr of chocolate chips
  • 3 pears
  • 2tbsp of grounded nuts or pecan


  1. Turn on the oven at 180°C/200°C (350/390°F) and grease a 24cm springform pan with some butter and dust it with flour (or cover it with parchment paper).
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave in a bowl at 450W for about 2min. (or according to the direction of the producer).
  3. In a big bowl or in the food processor mix the melted chocolate, double cream, flour, cocoa powder, oil, eggs, sugar and baking soda. Mix all the ingredients evenly.
  4. Peel the pears or wash them thoroughly if you want to leave the peel on. Remove the core and slice them into 1cm slices.
  5. Pour the mix into the pan and then cover it with the pear slices and sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake for 40minutes.
  6. You can serve this cake either lukewarm or cold: the difference is in the chocolate chips: the colder the cake, the crunchier they gets.
