Notes about this recipe

  • wester on October 26, 2016

    Very tasty, light and moist. Easy to make as well. I used some pears that needed using up instead of canned pears. Two pears was the right amount. I do not have a food processor so I tried to mix by hand mixer. This was a mistake. The batter (more of a dough really) was very thick and it was very difficult to get it off the mixer again. Next time find a different way of mixing and/or use larger eggs. When I had dolloped the dough on the pears they were only half covered but it spread nicely in the oven. I baked for five minutes more than the recipe said as it seemed still a bit too wet, and the cake was perfect like that. It does stay quite moist, you don't want to overbake it.
