    Kasha's Note:

    A fast, easy, and cheap French cake. It keeps a week, and is better when a little old. If I want to dress it up, I serve it with creme anglaise or whipped cream. Recipe originally from one of my adult students, Yves.

      Made this for an ambitious 7 course meal for some friends. The cake seemed way too dense and the pear flavor got overwhelmed by the chocolate. It was definitely good, in the way that chocolate and fruit will always taste good together, but not a new or exciting flavor.

      Unfortunately this cake didn't get rave reviews when I made it. The pears do add a slight sweetness, but the cake was very dense and the chocolate taste was the cocoa. If you're looking for a great chocolate pear recipe, I would recommend Chocolate Pear Pudding by Nigella Lawson on the Food Network website.

      Lightly sweet from the pears with a nice chocolate flavor. Made for dinner with our parents and it went over very well!
