Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup vegetable oil, plus more for greasing pan

  • 1/3

    cup chopped walnuts

  • 1/2

    cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 2/3

    cup chocolate chips

  • 4

    large eggs, at room temperature

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1

    cup matzo cake meal

  • 3

    ripe Bartlett pears, peeled, quartered and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9-inch cake pan. In a bowl, combine walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon and chocolate chips. Set aside. Use an electric mixer set on medium to beat eggs until well combined and bubbly, about 1 minute. Add sugar, beating until mixture is pale yellow and billowy. Pour in ½ cup oil in a slow, steady stream, followed by vanilla, beating until combined. Use a spatula to fold matzo cake meal into batter until just combined. Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Top with half of pears, followed by half of walnut-chocolate mixture. Add remaining batter, using a spatula to smooth top. Sprinkle with remaining pears and walnut-chocolate mixture. Bake until cake begins to pull away from sides of pan, 1-1¼ hours. Remove cake from oven and let cool completely before serving.
