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

  • oh wow… a pear cake.. i’ve never had one before to be honest. Will give a try :D yayyyy


  • Lovely recipe! Pear will make a nice change from apple!


  • Yum. I love fruit in a cake. Pear would be so moist and juicey and sweet


  • Too much sugar for my liking. I make an upside down pear cake without sugar which tastes divine.


  • I can’t believe I’ve never made a cake with pears in it. Thanks for the recipe.


  • I would love to give this a try, thanks for the recipe.


  • Oh my this looks scrumdiddlyumptious. I’ll have mine warm with cream and ice cream please.


  • I like the sound of this cake as it’s similar to another I really enjoy and the top looks soooooo good thanks


  • I would love to try this recipe,pears in cakes are amazing!


  • Sound close to a crumble with the topping, it is going to be great eating it.


  • I suppose the different pear types would change it some. Might try with hard and soft ones to find out.


  • The yummy sugar and almond meal crust on top got my attention. Super crunch with the softness of the sponge and pears. Mmmm,m


  • This sounds delicious. Can’t wait to try this!


  • French pear cake sounds so tempting – Must be delicious served warm.


  • I love pear cake. If you want it to be extra yummy.. you could melt some dark chocolate on top. Slurp!! :-)

    • Oh! I love this suggestion of the dark chocolate drizzle and I have a feeling I will love the taste too! Thank you! :)
