Pear Cinnamon Cake

This is the perfect cake recipe for fall I believe. I made it on a rainy Sunday afternoon, when I was in need of some comfort food. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

What do you need?

200 grams unsalted butter, at room temperature
150 grams sugar
4 eggs
200 grams all-purpose flour
2 pears
2 teaspoons cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

How to start?

Preheat your oven to 170 °C

Whisk together the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Mix in the eggs one by one. Now gently add the flour, baking soda, salt, vanilla extract and cinnamon.

Line a baking tin with parchment paper.

Wash the pears, remove the core and slice.

Pour the batter into the prepared tin and smooth the top.

Arrange the pears on top of the batter and put some extra cinnamon and sugar on top.

Bake until lightly browned and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, about 60 minutes. Remove your cake from the tin and let cool on a rack.
