Looking for a way to impress that special someone? Or maybe that special someone is you, and you just want to treat yourself to a nice, warm sweet dish? Look no further, this Dark Chocolate & Pear Cake is the perfect guilt-free treat!


4 pears, peeled, cored and quartered

1 teaspoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon Natvia 100% Natural Sweetener

100 g sugar-free dark chocolate, broken up into pieces

2 tablespoon coconut oil

2 eggs

50 g Natvia 100% Natural Sweetener

75 mls almond milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoon cacao or cocoa powder

75 g plain flour (use gluten-free)

25 g ground almonds or almond flour

1 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line a 20cm loose-bottomed cake tin.
  2. First, prepare the pears: Heat the coconut oil and Natvia in a frying pan then add the pear quarters and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, to soften and caramelise. Set aside.
  3. Now onto the cake: Gently melt the dark chocolate pieces and coconut oil then set aside for 5 minutes.
  4. Whisk the eggs and Natvia together until increased in volume and frothy, then pour in the melted chocolate along with the almond milk and vanilla. Continue to whisk for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the cacao or cocoa powder, flour, ground almonds/almond flour and baking powder and whisk for a further 1 minute until combined.
  6. Pour the cake batter into the tin and smooth out. Arrange the pears on top in a pattern (you might have some leftover - save them to serve with the cake!), then place in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, until risen and cooked through.
  7. Leave to cool then turn out onto a wire rack. Drizzle with melted dark chocolate, then slice up and serve.
