Cook Time
  • 100g dark chocolate (70%)
  • 110g Butterat room temperature
  • 110g brown sugar
  • 4 eggsat room temperature
  • 150g nuts, finely grated
  • 40g corn flour
  • 30g cocoa powder
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1pinch of salt
  • 50ml milk
  • 3 pearsmedium sized
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F.
  2. Place the chocolate and milk in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and heat until melted. Remove from the heat and allow to stand at room temperature until completely cool, but still runny.
  3. In a mixer, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Gradually add the eggs and beat well to combine. Add the chocolate, hazelnuts, corn flour, cacao, baking powder and salt. Mix until well combined.
  4. Pour the batter into a loaf tin (previously greased and dust with flour or grated nuts if you do not use a flexible pan). Insert the pears deep in the batter.
  5. Bake for about 40-45 min until cooked when tested with a skewer. Cool in the tin for 15-20 min before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy 🙂
