Love is a chocolate and pear torte

I have not baked a cake for sometime now.

However yesterday being Valentines Day I thought I would surprise my partner with a new baking sensation – turns out he surprised me in the end, but that is another story.

I looked in my kitchen and my cookery book and decided that I would make Chocolate and Pear Torte. I am now officially a dark chocolate fan so it seemed totally appropriate. In the past I have found baking soothing to the soul. This time was no different. I had also the addition of an audience of one – my friend was watching on FaceTime on the iPad while I stirred and whisked away the evening.

The finished product!
