What to do with all of our pears? - Fantastic, quick, delicious recipe

We planted fruit trees for each of our girls after they were born.  An apple tree for Alena, and a pear tree for Mia Rose.  This is the first year the that the pear tree bears abundant fruit.  Very exciting :)  So yesterday, I was looking for a recipe for "Birnenkuchen" (Pear Cake).  Instead of butter the recipe I choose uses olive oil.  The result was a cake that was delicious, moist, not overly sweet.  Oh, and this recipe can be used for any type of fruit. Yay, just what I needed.  

Here it is 

  • 5 Apples, pears or other fruit
  • Preheat oven to 360 F (180 C)
  • 200 gr flour
  • 200 gr sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 tsp baking powder (recipe calls for one package)
  • 200 ml "milk" (I had plain soy creamer)
  • 6 Tbl Olive Oil
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Peel fruit and cut fruit into slivers 
  2. Mix eggs, sugar, and pinch of salt until it is creamy
  3. Slowly add flower and baking powder
  4. Add "milk" and olive oil
  5. Add fruit to dough mixture
  6. Pour into spring form and bake for about 45 minutes until top of cake is nicely browned. (Start checking after 35 minutes)

Enjoy!!! Happy baking :)
