DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350° degrees. Butter six 1-¼ cup custard cups, ramekins, or giant muffin tins.
  • Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan. Add brown sugar and honey; cook over low heat for about 2 minutes until mixture no longer separates.
  • Divide mixture evenly between prepared dishes.
  • Cut each pear into 12 wedges and place 4 wedges in the bottom of each dish; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, beat remaining 6 tablespoons butter until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
  • Combine milk and Amaretto in a bowl. Add half of the dry ingredients to the butter and sugar mixture, then half of the liquid, beating well after each addition.
  • Repeat until all ingredients are combined.
  • Pour batter into the six prepared dishes, smoothing the top.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from oven and place on a rack for 10 minutes.
  • Carefully flip each dish over onto serving plates to remove from dish.
  • Serve immediately with lightly sweetened cream and toasted almond slices.
