Everyday Pear Cake (Mimi Thorrison) (Cake de peras)




When I was looking for this recipe Mimi say "A lot of my cooking is based on abundance, on what's most in season"

Sometimes happens me, I choose my recipes when I have a lot of someones or really ripe  fruits .

I made this pear cake with some pears really ripe and waiting by new fruits in this new spring ...
