Description

Here's a super special sweet treat for your Valentine this year (and not just on Valentine's day): a heart shaped cake that showcases the amazing combination of pear and chocolate -- oh, and walnuts, for even more of an indulgence, plus coffee for a touch of all-grown-up flavor. Dark chocolate that has at least 70 percent cocoa works best here, as do Rocha pears, which should be ripe but still firm.

Ingredients

  • 225 grams French bread flour
  • 25 grams cocoa powder
  • 125 grams unsalted butter (cold, cubed)
  • 85 grams brown sugar
  • 1 eggs (organic)
  • 1 teaspoon Bonsalt (coffee)
  • 180 grams 70% cacao chocolate (dark)
  • 200 milliliters cream
  • 40 grams nuts (coarsely chopped)
  • 2 Rocha pears (ripe)
  • jelly
  • glaze

Directions

  1. Combine the flour, cocoa, butter, Bonsalt and sugar in kitchen mixer or blender. Mix until crumbly. Add the egg, continuing to stir. Remove the dough and roll it into a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Flour a working surface, place the dough on the surface and cover in plastic wrap, and roll out the dough.
  3. Line the heart-shaped tart tin with this dough and chill again in the refrigerator while preparing the filling.
  4. Put the cream in a saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  5. Break the chocolate into small pieces and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Remove, stir and repeat if the chocolate is still not completely melted. (30 seconds each time, otherwise the chocolate will start to burn)
  6. Once the cream starts to boil, add the chocolate, stirring well.
  7. Pour the mixture into the tart tin and bake in the oven preheated to 360°F for 15 minutes.
  8. Slice the pears. Remove the tin from the oven. Arrange the pear slices over the filling (which should be firm). Garnish with chopped nuts.
  9. Bake in the oven for 20 more minutes.
  10. Remove and let cool completely before removing the tart from the tin. Brush the pears with jelly.
