Tips for the pear and chocolate cake: without butter, soft and creamy

You can flavor the pears by cutting them and placing them in a saucepan over high heat together to a liqueur or a sweet wine of your liking (we chose the rum). Let them brown for a few minutes , until the liqueur has shrunk. After that, proceed as per preparation. If the dough is too liquid , add some more flour to make it homogeneous; on the contrary, if it is too solid , add some milk to make it soft. In case you don’t have butter at home , replace it with the same amount of sunflower oil that will be added when you whip the eggs with the sugar. Finally, if you like the spicy taste , you can add a level teaspoon of cinnamon powder: we still advise you to taste the dough to actually check if the dose inserted is sufficient as the sweet of the pears could cover the aroma of the spice!


You can keep this quick and easy dessert for up to 3 days in an airtight container placed in the refrigerator.
