Cake de peras con sésamo negro








Me encantó la idea de hacer este cake desde la primera vez que lo vin en Bon Appetit y la dejé reservada para cuando pudiera hacerla (son tantas las recetas:)
con las recetas me pasa que veo una receta y me enamoro así nada más, digo, esta me gustaría hacerla
y otras para nada, es cosa de amor creo yo. En todo caso no me falla cuando mr tinca generalmente era buena. Recomiendo este cake sobre todopor las peras quedan tan ricas en los cakes,y el sésamo negro le da un toque.

El sésamo negro lo pueden encontrar en negocios de productos asiáticos.

  2. Gloria, I'd never heard of a pear and black sesame seed cake before. It looks great but my better half wouldn't like it. She fusses about sesame seeds getting caught in her teeth... Thanks and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. Ah, qué delicia de torta! Sabes no he probado aún el sésamo negro, pero sí lo he visto y pensaba si sabe como el blanco o si sabe como el comino romano. Este fin de semana preparé una torta con harina de centeno y frutillas, seguramente te gustará porque es healthy, la postearé esta semana. Un beso,

    1. Mira Myriam yo lo encontré delicioso, sabe a semillas de amapola, como un poco a nuez, es más liviano que el sésamo blanco.) Veré tu receta cuando la pongas.

  21. I've come to the understanding that you're brilliant at baking. I love the look of this cake and the dishes are to die for.

    I had asked my hubby to buy me rose dishes but of course he choose another. And that's fine for now since I know he thought the pattern was truly lovely. Do you have a teapot to match?

  24. Hi Gloria.

    I really like your new header. I think there is a lot of red going on here though.

    You have used some of my hubby's favorite ingredients, and I truly think he would really enjoy this bread loaf. I think I will have to give this recipe a try and then let you know what my hubby thinks about it.

    Thanks again for sharing this with us.

    God bless.
