Eggless Cakes

Cakes with Fresh Fruits

Pear and Nut Cake

Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/gas mark 5

Use an 18cm/7 inch round cake tin.

Line and grease the cake tin. Puree three-quarters of the pears in a blender or food processor until smooth. Thinly slice the remaining pears and reserve.

Cream the butter and syrup together, then gradually add the sour cream, flours, baking powder, mace and walnuts. Mix in the pear puree. Put half the mixture in the prepared tin, lay the reserved pear slices on top and cover with the remaining mixture. Bake in for about 1 hour or until a warm knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool in the tin for ten minutes before turning out.
