I needed a desert...something different......something with pears since I had about a half dozen ripe pears to use before they go bad. I did a Google search and should have know what web site came up.......Smitten Kitchen of course! A bittersweet chocolate and Pear Cake.....it looked easy and outstanding!
The one process in the recipe that was new to me was browning butter, it was not hard at all. Have faith in her directions as you question sprinkling the pears and chocolates on top and not mixing it in. In the end, it came out perfect and was enjoyed by all! I served it with vanilla ice cream......oh so good!
