Pear Cake

The other day I had pears at home that were becoming a bit too ripe for my personal taste and I had never baked a pera cake before, so I decide to give it a try. Also my Internet server was down, so I had no way of looking up for recipes but as I love a challenge I decide to make good se of the ingredients I had at hand at the time and try e completely made up version from scratch. Believe me, this is  such a tasty and aromatic cake tasty that it will definetely become a tradition around here!

  • 1/2 cup honey

Beat the eggs together with the sugar and butter to form a foam. Add the honey and the Frangelico and beat. Add the flour and pour Frangelico again. Beat well. Grease a pan with butter and dusted with flour. Put in the dough and place the pre-sliced ​​pears. Sprinkle the slices of pear with white sugar.
