Recipe's preparation

  1. Place the 50g butter and 100g brown sugar into the Thermomix for 4 minutes at 100 on speed 1 (so its nice and bubbly).

    Pour into a 22cm tin with baking paper on the bottom, then place the pears onto the caramel in a circular pattern.

    Beat the butter and sugar for 2 minutes on Speed 5 til light and fluffy.  Add the eggs one at a time, through the hole in the lid, beating for about 30 seconds after each addition.  Then add the ginger, and then the flour and baking powder.  Turn on to speed 4 and the moment you see (by looking through the hole in the lid) that the flour is combined turn it off.  Spoon over pears carefully to not disturb the pattern.

    Bake in a pre heated 180 degree oven for 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.  Rest for 5 minutes then invert on to a serving plate, and serve warm or at room temperature.

Tip

Always be careful not to beat the flour for a moment longer than it needs - that is sometimes why the cake doesn't rise and isn't as fluffy as you would like.

    This is always a favorite of my family and friends. I always make it as a last minute dessert when I have a crowd over and its perfect as it looks impressive like I've spent all day in the kitchen whipping this up. Everyone loves it. Definitely one of my go to recipes.

    Absolutely delicious, a great way to use up pears that are a bit over ripe. So simple and apples could easily be substituted. I ate a piece warm with pouring cream as a dessert and it is just as delicious as a room temperature cake.

    Sublime, I used half GF SR Flour and half almond meal with an extra 1/tsp Baking Powder. To get a denser texture and we loved it

    Had some ripe pears to use up. My partner suggested an upside down cake. I'd never made one before. Found this recipe after a quick Google search. Cake was delicious!! I didn't have enough brown sugar so only used 80g for caramel and subbed with raw sugar for the cake. Absolutely delicious. Will definitely make it again. And keep it in mind for my next morning tea.

    I love this cake & have had great comments from my guests but I find I need to cook it much longer than 40 minutes....more like an hour. Has anyone else found this?

  • I didn't actually get to eat

    Submitted by Mez74 on 28. February 2016 - 16:07.

    I didn't actually get to eat any but my guests reported that they loved it. I used 1 teaspoon of mixed spice rather than ginger. My caramel leaked so the top didn't look quite as pretty as yours.
