How to prepare:
Sift flour in a bowl, add baking powder, almonds, butter, sugar, eggs and milk and knead quickly to a dough. Wrap the dough in foil and let rest about 15 minutes in the fridge.
Preheat the oven to 200°C/395°F (fan oven 180°C/360°F).
Grease a springform pan of Ø 28 cm with little butter and divide the dough over the bottom. Bake the bottom 45 minutes.
Peel meanwhile the pears, cut in quarter and remove the cores. Bring honey, water and pear brandy in a pan to a boil, add the pieces pear and simmer some minutes (don't let the pears get too soft).
Turn the pie on a wire rack and let cool. Drain the pears in a strainer.
When bottom and pears are completely cooled, arrange the pears on the pie.
Let the chocolate melt au-bain-marie and pour it over the pears. Care that the complete cake is covered. Let the chocolate stiffen in the fridge.
Beat the cream with vanilla sugar and top the pie or serve separately. Sufficient for 16 pieces.
