Ingredients

Pears

  • 4 pears

Dry

  • 1 1/2 cup wholemeal flour*
  • 1/2 cup oat flour**
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarb soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Wet

  • 1 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp Beyond Latte or replaced with 1 tsp ground ginger

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C fan, and grease the sides and base of a 24 cm cake tin.
  2. Slice one pear thinly and arrange it in the base of the cake tin. Slice or chop the remaining pears into about 1 cm chunks and set aside.
  3. Add almond meal into a large bow. Sift remaining dry ingredients on top and stir to combine.
  4. Blend wet ingredients in the blender. Pour onto dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined.
  5. Fold through pears gently (careful not to over mix), then spoon the mixture into the tin carefully so you (don’t disturb your pear arrangement). Spread the top out flat with a spatula.
  6. Bake for 35-45 minutes until a wooden skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven and leave in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn upside down onto a wire rack and carefully remove the base. Leave to cool before slicing
  8. Serve sprinkled with almond meal and icing sugar if desired. I like to have mine with a dollop of vegan lemon cream cheese.

Recipe Notes

*You can replace the different flour with plain flour or gluten free flour to make it gluten-free
**You can make oat flours by blending rolled oats in a blender for a few minutes until fine crumb
