Pear Cake with Frangipani

Pear Cake with Frangipani

Today we have a traditional French almond cake with small pears.

Pears reveal their taste in baked dishes perfectly well; they acquire extraordinary tenderness, sweetness and flavor. Heat treatment has a positive effect on pears.

If you have hard pears, you need to blanch them in sugar syrup. And if the peel is rough, it is better to remove it.
