Delicious rich chocolate cake with pears and a thick chocolate glaze to make it perfect.



For the dough

  • 2 pears (about 10 oz.), not too soft
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups (250g) sugar
  • 2 cups (260g) all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) milk
  • 1/2 cup (50g) almonds, slivered

For the decoration

  • 5.3 oz. (150g) milk chocolate glaze
  • 1/3 cup (80g) butter
  • 1/4 cup (30g) almonds, slivered


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°F). Grease a 10×5 inches (25x12cm) loaf pan or line with baking parchment. Set aside.
  2. Peel the pears, core and cut into 0.4 inches (1cm) dices. Set aside. Add the eggs and sugar to a large bowl and mix until light and fluffy (about 3-4 minutes). Mix the flour with baking powder, cocoa, and cinnamon. Add to the bowl, alternating with the oil and milk and mix until just combined. Add the almonds and pears to the bowl and fold in. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cover with some aluminum foil if the top gets too dark. Take out of the oven and let cool down in the pan for about 15-20 minutes, then remove carefully and let cool down completely on a wire rack.
  3. Chop the chocolate and melt together with the butter, mix until smooth. Let cool down a bit, then glaze the cake with it. Sprinkle the slivered almonds on top and let dry.


  • Enjoy baking!
