Chocolate Sponge Cake with Pears and Chocolate Fudge Sauce
A beautifully soft and fluffy chocolate cake, baked in a dish, with a layer of pears on the bottom. Very easy to prepare, and best served with this great, instant, chocolate fudge sauce.
So here I am with chocolate and pears again! I love this combination, as you may have noticed with my chocolate and ginger pear crumble. Here we have a super easy cake that comes together in minutes when we chuck all the ingredients into a food processor and whizz them together. I chose to warm the pears in the pan while the oven was preheating, just to start them off with softening up a bit before the batter went on top. If your pears are super ripe I think you can skip this step altogether.
The chocolate fudge sauce is so simple and quick it’s dangerous. I first tried it for these mini peanut butter pies, and since then I’ve made it for all sorts of desserts. You’ll find yourself whipping some up quite often, especially for ice cream! Enjoy!
WOW this looks good. I too love the combination of pears and chocolate so I know this must have been as delicious as it looks!
Thanks Thalia! It’s such a great combo isn’t it? And this cake is so easy to make… Thanks for stopping by
