Cake poire chocolat (Pears and chocolate cake)






Many recipes start with the same story, someone get you pears or plums or whatever (and you already have yours in my case pears and you have to do something because otherwise they get lost.) 
And I do not like the waste of food either fruit or something else.
Remember that it's still hot here (read summer) so it's easy to spoil it.
I can't wait Autumn arrive is my favorite season.

Well I had pears (see photo) and Gerardo (hubby) brought more pears, I remembered having seen this recipe, I did not know where or in what language I finally found it in  a French site .

The pears and the chocolate go well absolutely and this is a cake / dessert because  is moist and with the pears  is really good. Depending on the mold you can put 4 or 5 pears.
And since pears and chocolate go so well together I love this recipe has chocolate sauce as well.

Adapted from :Cuisine Actuelle   (in french)














Ingredients

4 or 5 little pears
8 cl water
1 cinnamon stick
 170 grams sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
80 grams  bitter dark chocolate
120 grams butter
200 grams  all purpose flour
dry yeast (1 sachet ) 
3 eggs
30 grams powder cacao



Method

To make the pears in syrup:

Peel the pears while keeping them whole. Pour the water into a saucepan, add 80  g sugar and vanilla and cinnamon stick, bring to a boil.
Add the pears and cook  for 15 minutes. Let cool in the syrup.

Preheat the oven to 180° c (356 ° F).
Cut the chocolate in pieces and melt them with the butterin bain marie.Mix well to obtain a homogeneous texture.
In a large bowlmix the flour with the yeast,, the remaining sugar and the sifted cocoa. Make a well in the center and then incorporate whole eggs and chocolate/butter mixture.Pour half of dough in a buttered cake tin and arrangw the whole pears and cover with the rest of the dough. Bake for about 40 minutes. or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.


Chocolate sauce (optative)

  16. Anche io non sopporto sprecare il cibo, è proprio più forte di me. Hai trovato un modo golosissima per utilizzare le pere che ti avanzavano. Altro che buttarle, guarda qua che golosità hai sfornato. Bella l'idea della pera intera
