Pear Upside Down Cake

Pear Upside Down Cake

This mouth watering Pear Upside Down Cake is worth to putting your diet aside for! Perhaps we should call it a naughty cheat treat day, as we all look forward to that day…. so –  guess what?  That day has arrived! Have you ever had this kind of Pear Upside Down cake? If not, then you really need to give it a try as it is delicious.

I would like to say this is one of my favourite desserts because I love to see people’s faces when they cut into it, to see how moist it is. You can taste the dates then the pears then all combined – beautiful! Baking is sometimes described as an adventure, but some of the nicest aspects of an adventure is the end result. Some people find baking is a chore –  what a shame. I like to think baking should be fun and new knowledge is always important. I also like to see the faces of my family when they try my baking, that’s what makes me happy. This is why I love baking very much. Especially when it comes to puddings. It will be interesting to hear your comments, but I am sure you will agree with me –  it looks really inviting. I do hope you will try this Pear Upside Down Cake and I really hope you all enjoy it.

Now let’s get baking!

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 3 /170c. Line up an 8" round tin or use grease proof sleeve like the photo. I think they are fantastic idea.
  2. Sift the flour and the baking powder then keep aside.
  3. Cream the butter and the sugar by hand or food processor until pale, then add the eggs one by one.
  4. Fold in the chopped dates then the flour and the baking powder. This is done by hand.
  5. Arrange the pears as you please. I have cut them in quarters as they were large, then I arranged them in circles.
  6. Spoon in the mixture on top of the arranged pears, then bake on a lower shelf for 35 mins or until the skewer comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven, then immediately pour over the reserved juice from the pears then leave in the tin for about 5 mins.
  8. Remove from the tin, but keep in the paper and then turn upside down on a wire rack to cool completely, then peel off the paper. Enjoy.
