Here’s an espresso cake of the most elevated request from Beth, studded with enormous wedges of delicious pears. Try not to expect a streusel besting— rather, the cinnamony disintegrate is squeezed into the base of the container to make a sort of covering. Beth prompts firm-ready pears for this cake, as delicate ones will heat into mush.
