This looks lovely! The ripe pears and chocolate combination sound very decadent! mmmmmmm. Interesting recipe though - you mixed the butter, water and salt together?

Thanks for you nice comment :) , yup, you boiled the butter, water and salt, together, and add right away to the flour, and mix it with mixer, the principal is like making pate au choux, I hope I spelled it right, If you wanna softer chocolate cake used all white sugar, because I am trying to cut down on sugar, I used brown sugar.
