I made a pear-chocolate cake this weekend.
I found this recipe on an awesome blog: Brooklyn Supper. I just discovered this blog, and I really like it. Great writing, great food ideas, lovely photographs…perfect!
This recipe sounded like a nice light cake and slightly different from the usual. So I thought I’d give it a go. It’s a different cake base than I’m used to, but it turned out great. The original recipe calls for a 9″ springform pan. Mine is in storage of course. So I did some converting (thanks, Google!), and I used two 9″ cake pans instead. It made for a slightly thinner cake than I would have like, but the taste was fine. I also overdid the chocolate a bit, but I figured most people would be OK with that. Mine didn’t look good enough to take a picture and it didn’t look as awesome as the one in the picture, but it tasted great.
