Pear Sponge courtesy of www.walkaboutcrafts.com


1¼ quantity short crust pastry (click here for recipe)

5 oz (150g) butter or margarine

5 oz (150g) caster sugar

few drops almond flavouring

3 eggs

4 oz (100g) self raising flour

3 oz (75g) corn flour

1 level teaspoon (5ml) baking powder

3 oz (75g) ground almonds

30ml (2 tablespoon) milk

3 small ripe, even sized pears

icing sugar, for dusting


1. Grease a 24cm (9½inch)round spring release cake tin.

2. Roll out the pastry and use to line the tin. Chill.

3. To make the filling, cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Beat in a few drops of almond flavouring, then add the eggs, one at a time. Fold in the flours, baking powder and ground almonds, then fold in the milk. Spoon the mixture into the pastry case and level the surface.

4. Peel, core and halve the pears. Make a series of parallel cuts across the width of each pear halve, but do not cut right through. Arrange the pear halves rounded sides up, on top of the filling.

5. Bake in the oven at 190°C (375°F) gas mark 5, for 1¼ hours. Cool in the tin for 15 minutes, then carefully remove the sides of the tin. Serve the sponge flan warm or cold, dusted with icing sugar.
