Chocolate cake with infused pears

Hey dolls
(Supersecret Limited trend edition cake :D)
This cake is perfect for autumn and it can be made with the double amount of pears.But since I am the only pear eating person in this household I had to put the pears on top of the cake so the cake can be eaten by pear haters.

You need
5 medium pears (peeled,removed seeds,cut in 6)
1 star anise
1 cinnamon stick
1 vanilla pod (scrape out the vanilla paste)
100 gr sugar
2 tablespoons Grand Manier

Put the above ingredients in a small pot and bring to a boil until all the sugar is dissolved.Let the pears rest and infuse for at least 2 hours.

For the cake:
5 eggs
150 gr sugar
50 gr brown sugar
a pinch of salt
200 gr cocoa powder
200 gr all purpose flour
50 gr soft pastry flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder /baking soda
100 gr ground hazelnuts
200 gr melted margarine
150 ml milk
3 tablespoons Grand Manier
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
 the 'juice' of the infused pears

5 tablespoons honey to brush the cake

Beat eggs,sugar,brown sugar and margarine until foamy.Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well with an electric mixer or a balloon whisk.
Put the dough in a greased cake mold and randomly place the pears on top of the dough.You may also push some pears to the inside of the cake.

Bake at medium high temperature (180 celsius ).To check if the cake is ready,pierce it with a bamboo skewer right in the center.If the skewer comes out clean,the cake is done.

5 minutes before the end of baking time,brush the cake with honey.

Done :D
