Pear Tea Cake.

I love my Thrifty Kitchen Cookbook but think this may possibly be the first time I have used it ... Oh no wait I did take the tips for the perfect mashed potato and possibly a stock recipe from it. :)

I was itching to bake something in the new oven and had some Bosc Pears on hand for the first time ever.
I skimmed over the Plum tea cake recipe in search of something that used Pears then started thinking Surely I could sub Pears for Plums and went back to read the recipe more carefully. Sure enough it says it right there as a suggestion to use Pears - or basically any in Season fruit.

The result a delicious afternoon Tea on Sunday.


  1. We are having a pear affair here too. So autumnal!

  2. Perfect! I love the addition of fruit to sweets :)

  3. Delicious! I think I'm putting that cookboook on my wish list :)

  4. Looks delicious Tammy! I've got that book too and didn't think much of it when I first skimmed through. Should have a closer look. Good to hear you're putting that oven to good use.

  5. Oh wow, that looks delicious. I must have to search out that cookbook.
