Ingredients:

  • 1.5 pears (I used William Bartlett but use any you like!)
  • 3 cups almond meal

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees (fan forced).
  2. Line a 20cm diameter cake tin with baking paper.
  3. Combine the almond meal, natvia, baking powder and cinnamon in a mixing bowl.
  4. Grate one of the pears (skin intact) and transfer to a mixing bowl.
  5. Add the eggs and vanilla to the grated pear and gently combine.
  6. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently combine.
  7. Slice the remaining 1/2 a pear into thin slices and arrange into a flower shape in the centre of the cake.
  8. Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until nicely golden and cooked through.
  9. Serve warm with coconut ice-cream or yoghurt.
  10. Enjoy!!

Swap – If you’re not a fan of pear, try swapping the pear with grated apple or finely chopped pineapple.
