  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of sugar may add 1/2 cup more if you like it extra sweet
  • 1 cup confectioner sugar + 2 tbsps. for dusting.
  • 1 1/2 sticks of butter
  • 1 1/2 tsps. baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3 ripe pears peeled and sliced
  • 1/8 tsp salt Just a pinch


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


  • Peel and slice the Pears.
  • In an electric mixer bowl, whip up the caster sugar and butter until you obtain a super creamy and fluffy texture.
  • Add in the confectioner sugar, vanilla and eggs. Continue mixing on high speed for a minute until they are well combined.
  • Add in the baking powder, sifted flour and a pinch of salt. Mix again for 1-2 minutes.  Gradually add 3/4 cup of milk while mixing on low speed. Mix for another minute.
  • Grease or spray a round baking pan and pour the batter in. Ideally, a 9 inch one is the best size.
  • After placing the batter in your pan, spread a layer of the sliced pears to cover the whole batter. Sprinkle some cinnamon and the brown sugar on top of the pears.
  • Bake in a pre-heated 375 degree over for 40-45 minutes. Insert a wooden skewer to make sure it's completely clean before removing the cake.
  • Remove the cake and cover with a kitchen towel to let it cool down. It may take up to 30 minutes to completely cool down. Dust with some confectioner sugar and serve.


  • If you are not serving right away, I recommend not dusting it too much because by the time you eat it, the cake's moisture will absorb the sugar and you will need to dust a little more later to make it look pretty for serving.
  • Only use real butter.
