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.

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs

  • 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**

Preparation:

  1. Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks and allow them to come to room temperature.

  2. Whip up the egg whites with a mixer until stiff peaks form.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the vanilla and the maple syrup (honey) for 1-2 minutes at high speed.

  4. Gently incorporate the yolk mixture into the egg whites using a spatula. Try not to deflate the egg whites.

  5. Sift the spelt flour and add it slowly to the egg mixture. Mix gently, but mix well.

  6. Finally, add the coconut oil* and the baking powder, and mix until well incorporated.

  7. Peel the 3 pears, remove their seeds, and cut them into cubes.

  8. Place approximately two pears worth of cubes in a baking tin of your choice.

  9. Pour the batter over the pear cubes.

  10. Mix together the pecans (cut into small pieces), the coconut oil*, the cinnamon, and the coconut sugar.

  11. Combine the mixture with the remaining pear cubes and spread it over the cake batter.

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

Tips:

* Melted but not hot!

** This mixture will be sprinkled over the cake batter.
