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!
