This isn't your typical upside down cake! Chocolate and pears are a heavenly combination, and here the pears are placed at the bottom of the tin then topped with a light chocolate sponge mixture for a beautiful presentation when the finished cake is turned upside down!
Dust the cooled cake with icing sugar. Take a creme brulee torch and lightly caramelise the top of the cake, focusing on the pear slices. You can also place the cake under the grill, but take care as it can quickly burn!
