Almond and Pear Cake

Almond and Pear Cake
A lovely, moist dessert cake that will please. The corn flour can be replaced with plain flour if you don't need or want gluten free.
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp corn flour
  • 80 grams butter, cubed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 ripe pears, thickly sliced
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  1. The ingredients above are for a 20cm tart case or cake tin.
  2. Place almond meal, corn flour, sugar and butter in the food processor
  3. Process until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  4. Add in eggs, process until creamy and smooth.
  5. Transfer the mixture into the greased tart case or cake tin. I use almond oil to lightly oil mine and line the base with baking paper.
  6. Arrange the pears on the top.
  7. Bake in a preheated 175C oven until golden brown and cooked or until the inserted skewer comes out clean, usually around 45 minutes.
  8. Brush the cake with the maple syrup and cool down the cake
