Why we love baking with Pears
When the temperature starts to drop and the days get shorter, it seems like everyone gets excited about Apple Recipes. But what I get REALLY excited about are Pear Desserts!
From a super light Pear Almond Cake to delicious Spiced Pear Muffins, Pear Frangipane Tartlets, Puff Pastry Pear Tartlets or fancy Red Wine Poached Pears, there is a pear recipe for everyone and every occasion.
Pears are such an underrated fruit when it comes to baking, but SO versatile. Great for breakfast, cakes or baked desserts, pears can also be roasted, poached, baked,... there are so many delicious pear recipes using fresh pears.
This fruit works perfectly with most Spices and other Autumnal fruits like Apples (check out my Pear and Apple Crumble!) or Oranges. And is equally as delicious with Chocolate like this Chocolate and Pear Cake!
Maybe you've got some ripe pears waiting to be used or simply looking for original pear recipes ideas, here are a few of my favourite fresh pear recipes.
I have rounded them up in the following categories:
- Small Cakes & Pastries
- Baked and Poached Pears
Pick your favourite variety of pears (or the one that suits your recipe the best) and let's get baking. My personal favourites are Bosc, Anjou and Bartletts!
