CH claims he had never seen a pear cake until I baked one last weekend.
And the pack of granola that had been lying around.
I've made cakes using bananas and apples, so I don't see why I can't make one using fresh pears! The result was pretty good too.
5 small pears, peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
Melt butter in a frying pan. Add pear and sugar. Cook until pear is soft. Set aside.
1.5 cups self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
Grated fresh ginger (optional)
Cream butter and sugar until mixture is pale. Stir in one egg at a time.
Add in flour + baking soda + grated ginger until the batter is well mixed.
Sieve a thin layer of flour onto the baking tin. Layer the pear slices at the bottom of the tin. Pour granola (optional) on top of the pears. Pour all the batter into the pan.
Bake in pre-heated oven at 170 degree celcius for an hour. Let cake cool for 10 minutes. Turn a cake plate upside down on top of the cake pan and carefully invert the cake pan onto the plate.
