Easy & delicious Pear Cake

Hi guys!

I’ve always been a fan of Apple Cake. Even the storebought ones my grandma used to present us at parties. I guess I just love the simplicity of the cake and that moist texture, thanks to the apples. Apple cake, apple cake with speculoos, … I’ve made many varieties on this family classic. Because that’s what I believe it is. A family classic. I don’t think I know one family who never made apple cake.

Sometimes, the classics need to be changed. Just a little. So instead of apples, I used pears. The recipe is the same, only the fruit changes. Super easy and still super delicious 🙂

Pear Cake

How to:

  1. Preheat the oven at 160°C.
  2. Grease the cake tin with the Dr.Oetker baking spray.
  3. Mix the butter, the sugar and the vanilla sugar together until the sugar is completely absorbed.
  4. Split the eggs.
  5. Mix the egg yolks together with the butter-sugar mixture.
  6. Add the flour and the pinch of salt and mix it all together.
  7. Whip up the egg whites and carefully add it to the batter.
  8. Put the batter in the baking tin.
  9. Skin the pears and remove the core. Cut the pears and put them in the cake.
  10. Bake the cake for about 45 minutes.
  11. Check the cake with a sharp knife. If the knife comes out clean, the cake is done 😀

I hope you guys enjoy this delicious Pear Cake as much as me and my family did!
