This is delicious and a very nice presentation if you take the time to arrange the pears artfully. The batter really works. You end up with a very tart-like crust without having to roll one. At first I didn't think this was so. It seemed more like a shallow, slightly dense cake but after refrigerating it, the entire taste and texture changed to something more tart-like. I used 1/2 tsp almond extract, thinking a full tsp would be overpowering but I will try the full tsp and some powdered ginger next time. I also added a bit of salt to the batter. If you want pear cake, serve it before refrigerating. For pear tart serve after refrigerating. Great recipe, Chef #164791.
