Number of serving: 6
4 cups ripe pears, washed and quartered

2 cup flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

a dash of salt

1 teaspoons baking soda

20 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons milk

14 tablespoons sugar

2 egg, lightly beaten


2 tablespoons sour cream

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 egg

Finishing touch

confectioner’s sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 360°F and grease a 9 cake pan, preferably springform.
  • In a food processor, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and butter.
  • Add in the sugar, and mix again. Add in the egg and milk, then mix again until just combined, avoid overmixing.
  • Pour the batter into the pan — it will be somewhat thick, so spread it around with a spatula if needed.
  • Add the pears on top, arranging them in a pretty circular pattern.
  • In a small bowl, combine the crème fraîche, sugar and egg, beating them with a fork, and pour this mixture evenly over the top of the cake.
  • Put in the oven to bake for about 60 minutes, or until golden and the pers are tender.
  • Leave it in the turned off oven for another ten to fifteen minutes.
  • Dust with confectioner’s sugar just before serving, warm, at room temperature or cold.
