The other day I bought a bag of Honey Belle Honey pear as I did the marketing at Fairprice. The small size pear is crunchy, sweet and juicy and I decided to add a few of them in my bakes. After searching for a recipe online, I saw this Chocolate Pear Cake from Italian Fast Food. The cake looks pretty with slices of pear layering on the top. Without second thought, I baked this cake but with reduced sugar. The cake seems a bit dry after baked but it became soft and moist after keeping it in an airtight container at room temperature for a day or two. The soft texture of the pear cubes inside the cake is delicious with every bite and it also has a unique flavour with the chocolate cake. So perfect for morning breakfast or enjoy with a cup of afternoon tea. in an airtight container
