Swedish Pear and Almond Cake
This is an amazing cake, so simple and yet utterly sophisticated. The delicate crumb is perfectly paired with almond and pear. Very easy to put together, I couldn't have asked for an easier cake to jump back on the baking wagon.
Happily surprised to find the pears dutifully disappeared into the batter whilst baking. It is possible to make almond paste and Joe Pastry says quite easy. Next time I need marzipan or almond paste I'm going to give it a try.
This cake could go anywhere or stay at home with a hot cup of tea. The family is raving about it. It must be quite good; they've momentarily forgotten about the Bostini which fell to the wayside and has yet to be made.
