Gorgeous, impressive, whole pear chocolate cake. It’s very easy to prepare but you will be so satisfied with the taste. Pears and chocolate are one of the bests combinations. Whole pear chocolate cake has intense chocolate flavour and pears that are just so incredible juicy and sweet.

How To Choose Pears

For this recipe same size pears will work best. Remember to use ripe pears for sweeter taste. However, if you have only small pears with different sizes, you can also use them. They may just slightly turn to one of the sides while baking. But it’s not a big problem. Cake will come out delicious anyway. Stuff them close to each other to prevent them from turning to the front or back.

How To Make Pear Chocolate Cake

It’s one of the easiest recipes, that I’m sharing with you. To start, sift flour, baking powder and cocoa through the sieve. Add in baking soda, ginger and chocolate. Stir to combine. In separate bowl, combine caster sugar with vegetable oil. Add in eggs, one at a time. Remember to stir well after each addition. Beat in milk. Add the flout mixture to the wet ingredients in three addictions. Stir until you reach smooth consistency. Pour the batter into prepared loaf tin, then insert peeled pears into the batter. Don’t worry if your pears slide a bit to one of the sides. They might do so, while baking if your pears are not big enough and they don’t touch sides of your loaf tin.
