Baking Pear Cake at Heart and Home

Welcome to Foodie Friday, hosted by Designs by Gollum!

What to do when you find yourself with too many ripe pears?

Make Pear Cake, of course!

I bake a wonderful pear cake (I will post the recipe tomorrow) that's quick and easy, and tastes delicious. First you make a crusty layer for the bottom of the cake, using flour, sugar and butter.

Then you whip up the batter using ingredients most of us would already have on hand.

It mixes up fast into a chunky batter that makes for a very moist cake, and the whole thing bakes together in a spring form pan.

A little meringue is spread over the top before baking,

and it goes into the oven for about 60 minutes.

When done, it comes out looking like this:

And this is what you do as soon as it's cooled down:

I'd love a piece right now! Eat your fruit, it's good for you!! :)

Until next time

I love to bake with Pears in the Fall months as a change from always eating Apple recipes. I can't wait to view your recipe and bake one for myself. Your blog is lovely and I love your header photo. I hope to peak in at your blog in the future.
