The Pear Cake

Yesterday I made a lovely pear cake based on a recipe I found here using pears I got from here. I love the idea of heirloom recipes handed done from mother to daughter and this cake is made from one of those very simple no-nonsense recipes which really only require ingredients you always have in the cupboard crowned by whatever glorious fruit you can lay your hands on.

In keeping with tradition I made the cake with the help of my little sous-chefs (who of course love the licking the spoon part best) and we ate it straight out of the oven accompanied by some fresh double cream.
