Easy Pear Cake
How about another cake recipe? This time I am sharing with you a cake that smells like fall. With all these flavorful pears around us calling for delicious desserts, I could not miss the opportunity and use them in a recipe. The cake is very flavorful, soft, and it contains no white sugar, apart from being easy to put together. Let us get to straight to the recipe.
60 g maple syrup/honey
130 g spelt flour
1 tbsp coconut oil*
1 tsp vanilla powder (or extract)
2-3 g baking powder
3 ripe pears
a mixture of a handful of pecans (or walnuts) +1tbsp coconut oil* + 1tbsp coconut sugar + 1 tbsp cinnamon**
Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks and allow them to come to room temperature.
Whip up the egg whites with a mixer until stiff peaks form.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the vanilla and the maple syrup (honey) for 1-2 minutes at high speed.
Gently incorporate the yolk mixture into the egg whites using a spatula. Try not to deflate the egg whites.
Sift the spelt flour and add it slowly to the egg mixture. Mix gently, but mix well.
Finally, add the coconut oil* and the baking powder, and mix until well incorporated.
Peel the 3 pears, remove their seeds, and cut them into cubes.
Place approximately two pears worth of cubes in a baking tin of your choice.
Pour the batter over the pear cubes.
Mix together the pecans (cut into small pieces), the coconut oil*, the cinnamon, and the coconut sugar.
Combine the mixture with the remaining pear cubes and spread it over the cake batter.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for about 20 minutes, turn off the heat, and leave the cake for 10 more minutes in the oven.
Wait for the cake to cool down a bit before cutting it and enjoying it with your afternoon coffee or tea. And be prepared - your house is going to smell incredible!
* Melted but not hot!
