Cinnamon Pear Coffee Cake

Perfect as a coffee cake

Perfect as a regular cake as well

This is chock full of fruit. Apples or pears would work. We used pears because one of Katherine’s coworkers has a pear tree. Have we mentioned how much we like Katherine’s coworkers?

Cinnamon Pear Coffee Cake

  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cups white all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups chopped pears
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • cinnamon sugar

Grease a springform pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 350. Whisk eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add butter and beat until incorporated. Sift flour and baking powder into mix and stir to incorporate. Fold in pears and cinnamon. The batter will be very thick. Smush into the springform pan. Sprinkle top with cinnamon sugar. Bake until golden brown, about 40 minutes.
