How to prepare this chocolate pear cake?

We start by melting the chocolate. It is then mixed with butter and egg yolks. Next to that, we beat the whites to snow.

The dry ingredients are mixed and then the melted chocolate is incorporated. Finally, we add delicately the whisked egg whites so as not to break them. They must bring suppleness to the cake.

We cut them pears (with or without the skin, it's up to you). You can then fill the mold with dough and arrange the sliced ​​pears. Sprinkle with slivered almonds then put in the oven.

After cooling on the grid, I advise you to place it a little on the fridge before you cut it, it will be easier.

Chocolate pear cake without flour

A soft pear chocolate without flour (gluten free) with almond powder ...
Prep time20 minutes
Cook time35 minutes
Total55 minutes
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: French
Yield: 8


  • 4 eggs at room temperature
  • 200 g chocolate pastry
  • 130 g unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp bitter cocoa powder
  • 100 g almond meal
  • 1/4 this salt
  • 80 g light brown sugar
  • 3 rather ripe pears
  • A handful of slivered almonds for decoration


  • Preheat the oven to 180 ° traditional heat. Separate the whites from the yolks. Melt chocolate and butter (microwave or double boiler). Let cool a little and incorporate the yolks one by one, mixing well between each.
  • Separately, mix the dry ingredients: ground almonds, cocoa, salt. Pour the melted chocolate into the dry ingredients and mix to obtain a homogeneous paste.
  • Beat the egg whites with the sugar until they stick together. Then incorporate them several times into the chocolate dough using a spatula so as not to "break" the whites.
  • Rinse the pears. At this point you can either keep the skin of the pears like me or remove it, it's up to you! Then cut them in half, hollow them out, slice them thinly, tightening the slices of the same pear.
  • Butter and flour a 25cm springform pan (easier for unmoulding) or a classic mold (with baking paper in the bottom). Pour the dough then gently place the pears on top. Sprinkle with flaked almonds and bake for 35 minutes (to be adapted according to your oven), check the doneness using a wooden pick. Let cool and unmold (note: it will cut better if placed in the refrigerator for 30 minutes).

    Cake made this day.
    A dessert shared with the family.
    I just increased the cooking time.
    The demoulding was a bit tricky, probably also because I don't have a springform mold.
    Thanks for the recipe.
    And now, your blog is in my reader so you don't miss out on future publications.
    Bravo for the visual, the photos which highlight the different dishes so well.

    I made this cake and as much to say that it delighted everyone. (the more fussy would have liked more pears).
    I respected the times and proportions to the letter and it was really perfect, very soft cake, with a good taste of chocolate.
    Thank you again for his recipes, which always earn me lots of compliments :-)

    Excellent flourless chocolate cake recipe! The springform pan is not a luxury for demoulding at the risk of breaking the edges a little.
    The super soft interior is a treat! To be done again !!
