Similar to my Apple Cake I made, I wanted to make something different from the abundant pears I got from the farmer’s market made with a hint of ginger. This cake may seem simple but it’s delicious and I think of having a cup of tea or coffee with it. It makes for a simple elegant dessert or casual afternoon get together with friends. I hope you enjoy it.
Preheat oven 375. Prepare a springform pan, bottom lined with parchment paper and lightly sprayed with cooking spray
In a bowl of a mixer, add the butter and mix until creamy. Add in the sugar and continue to mix until incorporated. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until fluffy.
Cut and Slice the pears and chop in small pieces. In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking powder, salt and ginger and stir until mixed together. In another bowl combine the Greek yogurt and sour cream together.
Add the yogurt sour cream into the butter sugar egg mixture and mix until just incorporated. Add in the flour mixture and on a slow mix until just combined or use a spatula to fold in the flour. Fold in the pears to be sure to evenly incorporate the fruit into the cake batter. Spoon the batter into the springform pan and use a flat spatula to spread batter evenly. Sprinkle the almonds over the cake. Gently bang the pan on the counter to pop any air bubbles that may occur. Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes. If a toothpick in the center of the cake comes out clean the cake is done.
Remove the cake from the oven and cool to room temperature before sprinkling powdered sugar on the top.
