This chocolate pear cake tastes really moist. Pears and a generous portion of vegetable oil make sure of that. At the same time, the cake has a fruity taste, which it also owes to pears. It is also very chocolaty. In addition to cocoa, many pieces of chocolate ensure this. By the way, instead of chopping chocolate yourself, you can buy chocolate drops.

Which chocolate?

I made the chocolate pear cake with dark chocolate. Alternatively, you can use milk chocolate. The higher the cocoa content of your chocolate, however, the more chocolate flavor the cake will have. This time I used dark chocolate with 90% cocoa. And with it the pear cake became very, very chocolaty.

How to make pear chocolate cake: tips and tricks

  • Use ripe pears for the cake.
  • If you don’t like pear skin in the cake, you can peel the fruit beforehand.
  • You can adjust the amount of sugar to taste, depending on how sweet you like the chocolate cake with pears, and how sweet your chocolate is.
  • Instead of dark chocolate you can use milk chocolate. In this case, reduce the amount of sugar if necessary.
  • Alcohol adds more flavor to the cake. But you can leave it out.
  • Do not stir the dough too long, but only briefly, until it just gets a homogeneous consistency, so that the cake tastes moist and not dry after baking.
  • To bake the cake, you will need a Ø 24 cm baking springform pan.
  • Use a wooden skewer to check whether the cake is baked. Insert a wooden skewer briefly into the center of the cake and see if it comes out almost clean. If the wooden skewer remains smeared in raw batter, you still need to bake the cake. If only melted chocolate remains on the wooden skewer, it’s done.
  • Do not bake the cake longer than necessary or it may taste dry and not moist.
