This cake “Charlotte pear and chocolate” is quite simple to make and is really good. It will delight your taste buds and those of your guests.


  • An electric mixer
  • A charlotte mold (of course!)


  • 20 spoon cookies “boudoirs” (the number varies depending on your mold)
  • 100 gr of dark chocolate, cut into small pieces
  • 25 cl whole cream
  • 250 gr pears in syrup (keep the syrup)
  • 2gr Agar Agar (natural gelling agent)


  • Boil 10cl of pear juice with 2g Agar Agar
  • Remove from heat and add the pieces of chocolate, stirring until it melts
  • Cool the chocolate (otherwise it will drop the whipped cream when they are mixed)
  • Whip whipped cream with electric mixer
  • Gently integrate the melted chocolate whipped cream
  • Put the chocolate mixture in the fridge 20 minutes
  • Meanwhile, lightly soak your biscuits in 10cl of pear juice mixed with 10cl of water
  • Arrange the biscuits on the edges of your mold (trick: if need not hesitate to cut the ends of the biscuits but before soaking them, reserve the cut ends).
  • Pour half of whipped cream in the mold
  • Arrange the sliced ​​pears on the chocolate (remember to keep half a pear to make the pattern on the top of the cake)
  • Pour the remaining chocolate-whipped cream
  • Arrange the non-soaked biscuits and biscuit bits to make the base
  • Place the charlotte in a cool place for at least 2 hours (the best would be a whole night)
  • When serving, tip the pan on a plate
  • Decorate the top of the charlotte with the half-pear cut (and why not add some chocolate chips!)

Dear Fuzzy, it only remains to wish you a very good appetite with this delicious charlotte pear chocolate!
