Pear Upside-Down Cake


; text-align: center;">






Finally a post with pears, we had enough pears (not as apricots) but you have to select carefully as we do not use pesticides, some have some small worms or things. But the pears are very good and we ate many as a natural dessert. Here the men loves pears.



In any case, the pear dessert I wanted to do for some time and was very good, moist and delicious.


Is adapted from a recipe of Time Life books. an antique book I have.




















Ingredients

4 to 5 ripe pears peel and in slices
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
200 grs. whole wheat flour
2 teaspoon of baking powder
3 eggs
100 grs. sugar
3 tablespoon of  corn oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoon of honey
2 tablespoon of orange juice

Method


Preheat oven to 180 ° C. In the bottom of a springform pan (removable) lined with greased parchment paper. Use a pan  about 26 cm.



Sprinkle the pears  with  the lemon juice.


Place pears in bottom of pan making the shape like an esfera.Place all the pears around.
Place in a bowl  and mix  the whole wheat flour, baking powder, sugar and  eggs . Stir well. 

Add oil and vanilla.

Stir with a wooden spoon should be well blended and smooth appearance.


Pour this mixture over the pears that are in the mold. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes.


 Bake until golden and firm.


Let stand in pan about 8 minutes.

Then carefully desmold and remove parchment paper.


Wait to cool slightly.


In a small saucepan heat the honey and orange juice.

Heat over low heat until make a syrup.


 With a brush spread the pears with the orange and honey glaze.


Let stand before serving.

Tip: If you like sprinkle the pears with some brown sugar.

Por fin hice un post de peras (aprovechando que aún quedan) los que viven o conocen Chile saben que este mes es de miedo, en Marzo todo se junta el regreso, las clases de los niños, tomar las horas que quedaron pendientes y las recetas que aún no hacía.

Tuvimos hartas peras (no tanto como damascos) pero hay que preparar las recetas con cuidado porque como no usamos pesticidas a veces tienen un gusanito u otra cosa, entonces hay que picar las peras con cuidado.En fin hace tiempo que tenía esta receta y no la había hecho.Esta tarta invertida de peras es muy rica y queda con una textura húmeda .

Esta receta está adaptada de un libro que tengo : Time Life Books Inc.


Ingredientes

4 a 5 peras maduras peladas y cortadas en rodajas.
1 cucharadita limón
200 grs. harina integral
2 cucharaditas de polvos de hornear
100 grs. azúcar rubia
3 huevos
3 cucharadas de aceite sin sabor
1 cucharadita esencia de vainilla
2 cucharadas miel líquida
2 cucharadas de jugo de naranja

Preparación:

Precalentar el horno a 180°c . Colocar en un molde de fondo removible un papel mantequilla cortado en circulo y enmantequillado (de unos 26cm)  en el fondo colocar los gajos de peras en círculo cubriendo toda la superficie. Rociar las peras con jugo de limón.
En un bol  unir la harina, polvos de hornear, azúcar, mezclar bien y agregar el aceite con la esencia de vainilla, agregar los huevos de a uno batiendo bien.
Hasta obtener una masa suave y uniforme.
Verter esta mezcla sobre las peras que estan en el molde..
Hornear en el horno por unos 45 minutos hasata que esté dorado y firme.
Retirar y dejarla enfriar durante unos 8 minutos.
Separar los bordes con una espátula
Desmoldar dejando las peras hacia arriba. Retirar el papel y dejar enfriar.
En una olla pequeña calentar la miel y el jugo de naranja hasta que sea como un jarabe.
Revolver bienn.
Con esta mezcla pintar con una brocha las peras y dejar enfriar.
Tip: si se quiere espolvorear con un poco de azúcar rubia.

  8. Me encantan las peras, pero acá ya estan aburridos, comimos todo el invierno, ya estamos listos para cambiar de selección... espero que estes aguantando bien marzo, ahora yo tengo a mi hija mayor de vacaciones, así que poco tiempo para la cocina, y con los días mas largos tan mas ganas de estar en el jardín que adentro.

  43. Gloria this torte looks scrumptious ;o)

    I love the foundation of the ingredients used in this cake.
    Since Hubby is truly not a fan of pears...I shall replace it with apples.

    Thanks for another great dessert.

    Ciao for now,
    Claudia
