Makes one 9-inch round cake.
This recipe will require 5 or 6 whole pears, depending on the size of your pears - 2 for finely grating, 2 for coarsely grating, and 1 - 2 for decorating the top of your cake.
For an extra-special presentation, melt dark chocolate with a small amount of virgin coconut oil and drizzle back and fourth across each serving.
