Spiced Pear, Red Wine & Chocolate Cake

Spiced Red Wine, Chocolate & Pear Cake

I’m sorry, it was entirely unfair for me to wait this long to post this cake. Entirely.

It was baked and devoured back in April as part of a Seasonal Sunday Lunch feast and somehow is only now seeing the light of day.

Remember this Drunken Chocolate Caramel Tart madness? This is that, but re-born into dark, rich cake. With spiced red wine poached pears. And a sticky red wine sauce.

And as I just got back from a girls weekend in the Hunter Valley a red wine infused dessert is so perfectly fitting. You’re welcome.

      Hi Debbie, I used pretty large pears so the quarters were pretty big – that said when they sink you get an extra surprise when the cakes are cut! Hope it was good :)

      Hi Emma, It keeps well but the pears will separate slightly from the cake due to the moisture content. I’d suggest cooling completely on the counter then storing lightly covered in the fridge. Bring it back to room temp before serving!
