I am not an inveterate kitchen tools shopper, I’d like to be, but I am not. I am the kind who might lust after a pasta machine or a machine that makes ice-cream or a KitchenAid, but just the thought of finding space in my little kitchen to fit all this stuff in stops me, most of the time. So that really makes me a do-everything-from-scratch, manual/menial sort of cook, who in spite of being a proud owner of one of those handheld mixers that can whip, and make dough, ends up using a large glass bowl and a wooden spoon most of the time.

Recipe for Pear & Almond Cake
This makes a delicious, soft cake, using an adapted and modified recipe from Women’s Weekly book on Cakes. I have used Coscia pears for this recipe. Coscia is a tiny pear from Italy, lovely green, full of flavour and crisp. And these had such a perfect shape that I wanted to bake the cake with these in it.
5 Coscia pears/or any crisp, blushing variety, small to medium size
1. Peel the pears, leave the stems on.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THE RESULTS WILL BE UP ON THE 18TH OF APRIL.
