  • 2-3 pears (cut into 12 pieces)
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of sugar

Cut the pears into 12 pieces. They don’t have to be pealed. Boil the water with vanilla and sugar. Place the pears in the boiling water and cook them for 10 min.

Take them out of the water and set them aside.


  • 6 oz (180 g) of butter
  • 7 oz (200 g) of dark chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp of flour
  • 1 Tbsp of cocoa
  • 1.2 tsp of baking powder

Melt the butter. Take it off the stove.

Add the chocolate and mix it until it melts and combines with the butter. Let it cool.

Beat the eggs and then add the sugar and mix it.

Add the chocolate sauce to the mix. Then, add the flour, cocoa, and baking powder.

Pour the batter into a cupcake pan and place a piece of pear in each.

Bake for 20 min at 340 F (170 C).


Pears are a great fruit to combine with chocolate. Their sweetness goes great with the bitterness of dark chocolate, specifically. I wanted to make use of pears while they are still in season, and before I start my Christmas baking. They were a great treat to finish my lunch off with!

  1. Great idea, particularly using pieces of pear!

    I had heard before of adding applesauce to cupcakes, as it boosts the moistness, but your idea of dicing a pear coarsely is brilliant. Not only does it contribute succulence, but it also brings an intriguing texture.

    How lucky the public will be when you open your bakery!
