Today is Father’s Day and although many expats or migrants around the world have their dads away it is always good to prepare a beautiful cake to celebrate them even at a distance. Then of course, we will eat the whole cake by ourselves but what can you do … for dads will make this sacrifice :)

And if you are so good not to finish it all in one day you can hope that there remains a slice when you come back tomorrow or saturday night at 5 am wanting something good to eat..Or it can be perfect as Sunday breakfast!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 jar of Nutella (or chocolate cream)
  • 2 pears Kaiser
  • 1 egg and 2 yolks
  • 300gr flour 00
  • 125gr butter
  • 1 / 2 teaspoon of yeast
  • 100gr of sugar

Prepare the pastry:
Mix the softened butter with sugar and the eggs. Form a mound of flour mixed with baking powder and pour the mixture of butter and eggs in the center. Knead the dough with your hands until it forms a ball.

Wrap the pastry in plastic wrap and let rest in the fridge for at least half an hour.

After this time, divide the dough into two parts, one double the other.

Roll out with a rolling pin the biggest part of the dough and put it on a round baking pan previously covered with baking paper. At this point have fun and  spread the pastry with the nutella (or chocolate cream). I would suggest to warm a bit the cream so it will be easier to spread it.

Then, peel and slice the pears and place them in over the chocolate cream.

Now take the smallest part of dough and crumble it with your hands to form an uneven coverage of the whole pie.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 ° for about 30 minutes.
