How to make it
- Beat the whole eggs (white and yolk) and the sugar in a large bowl, until smooth and foamy.
- Add the melted butter. You can melt the butter (cut in pieces) in the round cake pan while pre-heating the oven at 365F.
- The butter should remain white on the surface (don't melt it until it's oily and bright yellow!).
- Stir well to incorporate the melted butter into the egg and sugar mix.
- Sift the flour and baking soda over the bowl while stirring.
- Incorporate the flour to the mix little by little.
- Add the vanilla extract and cinnamon and stir well until smooth.
- Pour the dough into the buttered cake pan.
- Cut the pear in halves, peel them and remove the center (seeds).
- Place the half pears in a circle on top of the dough, bumpy side up, pointy side towards the middle of the pan.
- Gently push the pears into the dough (they'll sink in while the cake is baking).
- Bake 1 hour at 350 Degrees.
- The cake is ready if you can insert a knife blade in the center of the cake and take it out dry (i.e. no dough sticking to it).
- Get ready to eat and enjoy!
