Chocolate & Pear cake


  • 3 medium size pears ( peeled)

  • 150 g dark chocolate (70%)

  • 120 g coconut oil

  • 120 g of brown coconut sugar

  • 4 eggs

  • 100 g almond meal

  • 30 g flour

  • 1 tsp. of baking powder

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • Vanilla bean


Step 1.

Preheat the oven to 180 ° C.

Place the chocolate 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.

Step 2.

In a large bowl, whisk together coconut oil and coconut sugar until combined, add the eggs and beat well (we used a hand mixer). Add the chocolate, almond meal, flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Mix until well combined and thick enough (add extra flour if needed).

Step 3.

Pour the batter into a lined loaf tin and push in the pears into the batter vertically.

Step 4.

Bake for about 40-45 min. Cool on the wire rack for another 20 minutes. When ready to serve, slice and dust with icing sugar and serve with a large scoop of Oppo ice cream.
