Apple and Pear Cake Recipe
This week I found myself with a few apples and pears that had gone past their best. I hate to waste anything so thought I would make them into a cake and I was really glad I did because this cake was beautiful! The perfect autumn recipe, delicious warm served with cream and equally tasty cold with a cop of coffee in the afternoon.
It makes a big old cake so make sure you have plenty of people to share it with. Also make sure you use a cake tin big enough to leave some space at the top to pour over the caramel at the end.
You can make this cake with apples, pears or both. I used both and it had a delicious flavour – the best way to use up old fruit in my opinion! Just make sure that you dice up your fruit into small enough pieces. If you don’t like the texture of fruit chunks in your cake you can grate the fruit, but I think the texture from the diced fruit is perfect.
