Ingredients
  

  • 180 g All-purpose flour

  • 250 ml Soy milk with no-sugar
  • 1 Lemon

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the following ingredients and then set them aside.
    Peel and core the pears. Dice one pear and put into a bowl with the lemon juice.
    Slice the other one, put the slices into another bowl and season them with the brown sugar, the cinnamon and the lemon juice.
    Open the walnuts and break up the kernels into small pieces.
    Grate the extra dark chocolate or mince using the food processor.

  • To another bowl add the liquid ingredients: sunflower oil and soy milk. Mix well.
  • Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined in a soft batter.
  • Pour the batter into the round cake pan (line the bottom with baking paper and grease the sides with some oil and flour).
  • Distribute the apple slices and the rest of the walnuts evenly over the top of the cake.
  • Bake in a preheated oven on 180‘C. for 45 minutes.

Notes

Once removed from the oven, the vegan pear and chocolate cake will be very soft, don’t worry, let it cool well at room temperature and then, to fully enjoy its flavor, place it in the fridge for few hours.
