Easy pear cake

A simple and easy-to-follow recipe for a pear cake. Even though it uses a lot of pears, you will be surprised with how small the cake comes out ;). The cake is moist and so easy and quick to make. Perfect for a light dessert. If you’d prefer, you can add a hint of ginger or cinnamon to the cake batter. If you have many pears and are not up for a complicated cake, this recipe is perfect for you :).

Ingredients for the easy pear cake:

  • 500 g pears, ripe
  • fresh juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp pear or apple liqueur (not necessary)
  • 2 eggs
  • 50 g butter, melted and cooled
  • 75 g plain flour
  • 70 g caster sugar
  • 1 heaped tsp baking powder
  • icing sugar for dusting or apricot jam for glazing
  • creme fraiche, for serving

All ingredients should be at room temperature.

Peel and core the pears and cut them into cubes. Add the pears to a bowl and mix with lemon juice and liqueur. Set aside whilst you make the cake batter.

Mix the eggs in a mixing bowl. Add in the cooled butter and mix. Add in sifted flour, baking powder, caster sugar and mix. Add pears (with the juice) to the batter and mix.

Line a 20cm cake tin with baking paper. Pour the cake mixture into the tin and level out.

Bake at 175ºC for 30 – 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out dry. Remove from the oven and cool.

Before serving, dust it with icing sugar or spread it with previously warmed-up apricot jam. Serve with lightly whipped creme fraiche.
