Yum : Pear Tea Cake

This recipe is usually an Apple Tea Cake but I have so many jars of preserved pears left that I am keen to use them before the new season of pears ripen.  So I replaced the apples in this recipe with pears and it was absolutely delicious … oh and very easy.

Pear Tea Cake

  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup sugar

  • Cinnamon and vanilla

  • Mix all ingredients together
  • Pour into a spring form tin
  • Bake for 40 – 45 minutes.
