Torta chocolate and pears

Updated: Feb 25


The smell of the chocolate is spreading all over the house. Actually calling it a smell is a kind of diminishing it. It could be easily called a perfume and it is a shame there is not a bottom to allow you to enter in our kitchen. I almost burnt my hands because I was excited to see how we did with this cake. Had to be patient and let cool down a bit. Because the appearance was amazing but the real beauty, you are going to see it, is inside. The layer of finely cut pears is not only beautiful to see for the contrast of colours but it is giving to the cake a fluffiness difficult to describe. Or better, we got the words of one of our customers: "it seems to eat a cloud". If you want to have the same feeling, you need to bake this cake!
