  • 3 Eggs
  • 150 g Butter
  • 150 g Sugar
  • 300 g Flour
  • 3 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 0,5 tsp Cinammon
  • Some nutmeg
  • 125 ml Milk
  • 1 tbsp Rum
  • 100 g Chopped walnuts
  • 100 g Chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 can Pear halves


  • Beat the eggs, butter and sugar for a few minutes on the highest setting with the hand mixer until foamy. Mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, cocoa powder and nutmeg. Mix in briefly on a low level, alternating with milk and rum.
  • Finally stir in the nuts and chocolate. Put the dough in a prepared springform pan (26 cm) and smooth it out. Drain the pears and spread them on the dough with the curved side up. Press in lightly.
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees on the middle rack for about 45 minutes. You can of course use fresh pears instead of canned pears. But then drizzle a little lemon juice over them so that they don't turn brown. It also tastes delicious when you dice a pear and fold it into the batter. Spread the remaining pears on the dough as described above.
