Recipe's preparation

  1. Cook butter, golden syrup and sugar on 90c, 5 minutues, speed 2


    Add dry ingredients, milk & egg, mix speed 4, for 4-5 seconds (until dry flour is just combined, don't be tempted to over mix as this will keep it light and fluffy)


    Add pear pieces, mix reverse speed 2, 3 seconds
    Line a square cake tin with baking paper, add mixture and bake 180c for 60 mins or until cooked (test with a wooden skewer, it is ready when it comes out clean)


    Cool in tin for 10 minutes, then cool on a wire rack until cold

Tip

 

This tastes amazing warm or at room temperature, and tastes great with a dollop of sour cream or natural yoghurt (made in the Thermomix of course!) Always tastes better the next day!!

For a richer flavour, use 70g golden syrup and 70g of treacle.

    Our whole family loves this cake. I double the recipe in my TM5 and bake it in a 10" X 15" tin for a slightly thicker cake. I also add a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice and top with cinnamon sugar before baking to add about more flavour.

    I have made this cake 3 times now and it is almost 'inhaled' every time. I have made it with both fresh and tinned pears and it works fine with either. I do add 1 extra teaspoon of ground ginger as we love the taste of ginger but that is the only change I have made. Absolutely delicious recipe - thanks for sharing.i

    Turned out beautifully. I did use a little pear juice from my canned pears and subtracted the liquid amount from the milk, also added an extra egg as ours are only 40g each.

    Very nice cake. The batter is really runny (so i was a bit dubious... but it turned out well) and instead of using 310ml of milk i used 260ml of milk and an extra egg. I could have used a bit more ginger as the flavour is subtle. Thanks.

    Simply amazing. I found this after searching for a recipe I could use a couple of pears in as I had some at the bottom of the fridge. Love ginger so added an extra teaspoon. The cake is probably one of the best I've made - tasted wonderful and so, so easy to whip up. Will be a favourite in future

    This cake is amazing! I added a tsp of cinnamon and a tap of vanilla paste and used 30ml of cream as a part of the milk because I had a bit left in the fridge. So delicious. It's just come out of the oven and is already a quarter gone!

  • I made this before I headed

    Submitted by bonnielees on 14. April 2015 - 15:29.

    I made this before I headed out to playgroup with the kids this morning.  It took next to no time to mix and get into the oven, and it uses pantry staples that I have, so I didn't even need to shop for or substitute ingredients.

    I used a whole tin of sliced pears instead of fresh and it was delicious.  Nice and light and well spiced.  I didn't feel it was too sweet either, so it was perfect with a cuppa!  

    Everyone loved it.  I will be making this again.

    I like the idea of using apple and cinnamon for variety.  Great recipe, thank you.

    I was so looking forward to this cake. It browned beautifully and I thought it was cooked after 55 minutes. I've just cut it and its underdone. Next time I will cover after 45 minutes and cook an extra 10 minutes.

    Submitted by superquilter55 on 15. June 2014 - 22:27.

    This cake was exactly as described.  Sticky and yummy.  I only had very hard pears but they were great as they stayed whole and added texture to the finished product.  Didn't have all the ginger (possibly a little old as well) so there was only a subtle taste so next time will add extra .Very quick and easy and certainly moist.  Makes a big cake.

    Had to make a few changes as didn't have all the ingredients- treacle and honey instead of golden syrup and fresh grated ginger instead of powder. Its still baking but the smell is making the household drool. Just had to put alfoil on top for the last 20mins as it was getting too dark.
