Ingredients

  • 180 g flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • ½ t bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 cup full-cream yoghurt
  • 150 g sugar
  • ½ cup sunflower oil
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • For the vanilla-poached pears:
  • 4 pears, halved lengthways
  • 4 T brown sugar
  • 2 T honey
  • 2 t vanilla paste
  • 1 cup Woolworths Honeydew juice
  • 1 cup Amaretto or sherry
  • For the coffee-chocolate crema, mix:
  • 100 g chocolate, melted
  • 4 T espresso
  • 150 g mascarpone

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 20 cm bundt or round cake tin. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl. Beat the remaining ingredients together for 7 minutes.

2. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet. Spoon into the cake tin and bake for 40 minutes.

3. Remove the cake from the tin and place on a plate. Prick with a fork and spoon over some of the pear poaching liquid.

4. To make the poached pears, place all the ingredients into a saucepan and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove the pears and simmer the syrup until slightly reduced.

5. Serve the cake with the chocolate crema and pears.

Cook's note: “This is my take on this classic and plays with the different flavours of coffee and chocolate."
