One thing that we all agreed on was dessert and that was always a chocolate cake with a mocha icing (I will have to make that one of these days!). My mother’s best cake, and I have yet to taste one as good as hers!
I also discovered when I came to Italy was that Italian cakes, homemade-every-day-cakes were very rarely, if ever, frosted.  But most of the times they were dusted with icing sugar or unsweetened cocoa.
This cake and a my simple Yogurt cake  are perfect for anyone who loves a less sweet cake.  I find this Pear Cake a perfect example of that.
It is one of those cakes that make the perfect breakfast cake. And don’t we all love a delicious cake for breakfast?  Besides who can refuse the tasty combination of mascarpone and pears?  Enjoy!
