Little Chocolate Heart Cakes with Pears


This recipe makes 8 small chocolate heart cakes with pears and almonds; you need a silicone mold with 8 small heart shapes to bake them.


  • 3 ½ ounces dark chocolate (70% cocoa), chopped
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 ripe pear - peeled, cored, and chopped
  • ½ cup slivered almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place an 8-cavity heart silicone mold onto a baking sheet.
  2. Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 15-second intervals, stirring after each melting, 1 to 3 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes.
  3. Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add melted chocolate, 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour, egg, and baking powder and mix in. Fold in pear and almonds into batter. Spoon batter into the prepared heart-shaped molds.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 10 minutes. Cool completely, about 30 minutes, then unmold.
