The Pistache Cake - Dark Chocolate, Pear and Pistachio Cake

A lovely girl called Melissa, who also has a blog dedicated to baking and cooking (careerintheover), sent me this recipe for lavish chocolate, pear and pistachio cake. Oh my god, it's amazing. I used organic dark chocolate and organic pears to create this fancy-schmancy cake. It's rich and delicate, while the coarse crumbs of pistachio provide texture in the form of a little crunch. As if it wasn't sumptuous enough, the cake is then coated in a dark chocolate ganache. I'm sure it will impress anyone who loves chocolate!

  1. Hey! I'm so glad it turned out for you! I hope you had enough batter to make a test cupcake for yourself.

    When I first made this cake, I failed miserably with the ganache, among other things. Yesterday, I made ganache for lamingtons and had great success! It looks like you didn't have any trouble at all with this cake :) Looking forward to your next cake already.
