What’s better than a delicious slice of cake mid-afternoon? I’m all about the little winter treats, that help to make the cold outside seem a little bit better. Trudging around with my big boots, hat and scarf on, I find myself dreaming of sitting cosy by the Christmas Tree. With the fairy lights on and the room aglow. Big fluffy socks on my feet and a warm coffee in my hand, with a big slice of cake to have on the side. And this cinnamon spiced pear cake is exactly what I find myself craving.
Light, moist and delicately spiced. The pear inside the cake helps to keep it moist and soft. While the cinnamon sugar creates a deliciously warming, spiced Christmas feel, making it completely moreish. I love cakes with a little crunch, so the cinnamon sugar topping is my idea of cake perfection.
It’s quick, easy and so simple to make. You just throw all the ingredients together using the all-in-one method and pop it in the oven. Sit back, and wait for the house to be filled with that delicious, mouth-watering smell, that only a freshly baked goodies can create. The gentle spices really help the pear to shine. And together these flavours are like a little slice of Christmas on a plate.
Time to take a bit of me-time, cosy up next to the Christmas tree, and enjoy a slice of festive cake!
