Pear Cake

4 Sep

A relative gave me a cake book she has and that she’s not using anymore, since she knows my passion for baking. The other night we were invited at her house, so I decided to choose a recipe from that book and surprise her. I chose to use pears because it’s still the season, and because the cake contains cinnamon, and me love cinnamon, specially added on the pancakes with some drizzled honey.

Pear Cake

– 4 pears, peeled and cored

– 2 tbsp water

– 200g flour

– 2 tsp baking powder

– 100 g brown sugar

– 4 tbsp milk

– 2 tbsp honey

– 2 tsp ground cinnamon

– 2 egg whites

Preheat the oven at 150C and grease a 20 cm cake tin. Put 1 pear in a food processor with the water and blend until smooth. Transfer to a mixing bowl.

Sieve the flour and baking powder. Beat in the sugar, milk, honey, cinnamon. Mix well. Chop 2 pears and add to the mixture.

Whisk the egg whites until peaks form, and gently fold into the mixture till blended.

Slice the remaining pear and arrange the slices on the base tin. Spoon the cake in the tin and bake for 45- 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Let the cake cool for 10 minutes before unmolding and let cool completely on a wire rack.
