Chocolate, Pear and Cinnamon Cake (Torta al cioccolato con pere e cannella)

Another fanstastic cake for your Halloween weekend party? Here we go with a Chocolate and Pear soft cake, with a light flavour of cinnamon.....pure pleasure.... for you, your friends and family. It is very easy to make if you can have a mixer and an electric hand egg beater. I am sure everybody will love it! If you don't like cinnamon, don't add it.  I personally love the taste of Chocolate, pears and cinnamon together... Use a good dark chocolate for this cake, a 70% cacao minumum. Enjoy!

150gr Dark chocolate
1 Tbs Powdered cacao
200gr Sugar
100gr Butter (softed)
230gr Flour
70gr Potato flour
125gr Plain yogurth
80gr milk
3 eggs
1 Teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon powdered cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
3 Medium pears
Powdered sugar for decoration


Butter and flour a round baking pan (24cm), keep aside. Peel the pears and cut in tin slides, keep aside. Preheat the oven 170 C° (340 F°). Add in a mixer the chocolate and the sugar, mix well till everything gets powdered. Pour the powdered mixture in a large bowl, add the chopped butter, yogurt, milk eggs and vanilla extract, mix it well with an electric hand egg beater till all the ingredients are well melted.

Add the flour and potato flour with the pinch of salt, mix it well. Add the baking powder, work with the electric cooking whip for long time.

Pour half of the mixturein the baking pan, add the pears, proceeding as in the photo.

When completed sprinkle the cinnamon powder on the pears.

Pour the left mixture on the top, to cover the pears. Place the cake in the oven at 170C° for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes check if the cake is cooked with a wooden stick...if the centrum is still liquid cook for further 5 to 10 minutes then take it out of the oven and make it cool.

Your cake is ready. Decorate with the powdered sugar. I use to place a pear on the cake and powder the sugar on it.... take out the pear and your nice decoration is done! Buon appetito!
