Chocolate Pear Bread

Chocolate Pear Bread

A wonderful and seasonal chocolate bread. Of course, it can be adapted for other fruits - sour cherries, cherries, apricots, bananas etc. - but pears are very suitable here and give a fresh note to the strong chocolate taste. If you are looking for a chocolate cake with an intense taste, moist texture and a bit dense, this is your recipe! My family enjoyed it with great pleasure, the pear chunks in the cake were the stars, so don't ignore them.
