2 Cream the butter with the sugar using a wooden spoon or an electric hand mixer until pale and creamy. Beat in the eggs. Then add the flour mixture gradually, adding a little of the milk each time until all of it is combined. Fold in the chopped chocolate and pears.

3 Pour the cake mixture into the prepared pan, put it in the oven, and bake for 30-45 minutes, or until firm and springy to the touch. Allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then remove from the pan, and transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.

4 Sift over confectioner’s sugar before serving. STORE The cake will keep in an airtight container for 2 days.
