Cake with chocolate and pears is an italian cuisine recipe not very easy to make but very tasty.
I like a lot the combination of pears with chocolate , if you then add also the bitter taste of amaretti is really a success.

A great variety of cakes was created during the history by  italian cuisine.

Each region boasts Italian recipes for sweets and cakes and traditional features. Some of these are particularly popular in the rest of the world, other cakes are famous only in Italy and some cakes are so special and features that are known only locally.

  1. A variety of fruits can always be combined well in making a cake. With regards to pear it must have taste somewhat like one mixed with apples I guess. Or I better try this to see for myself.
