Ginny's tamarillo, pear and spice cake

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, June 9, 2013, In : big cakes 

I made this the day Dish posted it on Facebook. Their recipe used sour cream. I didn't have any, so substituted a thick yoghurt... it was still yummy. And great for breakfast the next day
I love using my cast iron and copper sauté pans for making cakes. They cook beautifully and I serve the cakes straight from the pan. Tangy tamarillos combine well with the sweet pears and adding a hint of orange and a dash of spice makes for a moist seasonal cake.


4 large tamarillos

For pear and pecan tart: peel 3 pears, cut into slices and toss with handful of pecans, some brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger. Spread evenly over pastry sheet, folding up the edges. Baste with some melted honey; you could also brush...
