600 g “00” white flour
300 g sugar
100 g butter
100 g Amaretti D’Italia macaroons
100 g dark chocolate
1 untreated lemon
1 bag of baking powder
Chip the chocolate and crumble the Amaretto biscuits.
Mix flour, baking powder, sugar, lemon bark and eggs in a bowl. Mix well, and then add butter softened at room temperature, chocolate and Amaretti d’Italia biscuits.
Peel the pears and cut them into slices.
Grease and flour a cake pan about 24 cm in diameter, pour the mixture and lay the pears down on it in the shape of a fan.
Bake at 180° C for 35 minutes. Use a toothpick to make sure the cake is cooked on the inside: insert it in the centre and see that it is dry to the touch.
Serve warm or cold and, if you wish, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
