Preheat oven to 180 °C.
Start by beating eggs with sugar until you get a smooth texture. Add chestnut flour, corn flour and baking powder, ideally previously sieved, and combine. Finally add the melted butter and combine again.
Pour preparation in a greased and floured tin.
Peel and seed pears. Cut each quarter into thin strips. Coarsely chop chocolate.
Arrange pears by soaking them half or ¾ way in the batter. Here I’ve only used 2 ½ pears instead of 3. Sprinkle with chocolate and again lightly press on the larger pieces of chocolate.
Bake at 180 °C for 35 to 40 minutes. Check with a sharp knife. When it is dry, the cake is baked.
