Yummy warm as a dessert with cream or ice cream, but just as good cold with a cuppa !


Ingredients (makes 1 23 cm cake)

  • 40 Grams butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 4 pears, peeled , cored and sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon sugar extra
  • 20 grams butter extra

Method

  1. Generously grease a 23cm springform pan with butter. Sprinkle 1/2 the almond meal into the pan and shake around to coat the sides and base
  2. Combine the eggs and sugar and beat well until combined
  3. Add the vanilla, milk and flour and mix well to form a thick batter. Stir in pears and pour mixture into prepared pan .
  4. Mix extra sugar with remaining almond meal and sprinkle over the top of the cake mix. Dot with the extra butter
  5. Bake in 180 deg.( 160 fan forced) oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. If cake top begins to brown to quickly cover with foil for the remaining cooking time

Notes

Deliciously moist cake with a full pear flavor. I used brown pears but any variety will suffice.

  • We LOVE pear cake, I make mine without sugar as pears are already so sweet. But I do add cinnamon and vanilla bean pods
