A couple of weeks ago I kept seeing apple cakes everywhere. And then all of a sudden, we were overflowing with pears and I just couldn’t get the kids to eat them. Pia usually loved pears but the others are hit and miss. I didn’t want them to spoil as were all about avoiding food wastage at the moment so I decided to whip something up using the pears we had sitting in the bottom of the fridge for the kids for afternoon tea. I really like this cake; it’s very moist but also sweet. Its got a real rustic feel to me. I love the flavour of pears and the mix of coconut with it goes really well I believe. Anyway, you give it a try and let me know what you think.
