Sour Cream Cardamom Pear Cake
I have always maintained that I am not a baker. I can bake things but not very well and my nature is somewhat averse to the required precision. However, recently and perhaps it's the weather, I've been in the mood to bake. Whatever the reason, I've been inspired but am selecting recipes that aren't overly complicated. Which brings me to my latest attempted, a delicious, yet simple, cake that is fragrant with cardamom and topped with lovely sliced pears.
Of the many food sites and blogs I follow on a regular basis, Food52.com is one of my favorites and this is where I found this recipe. It is the perfect cake to have with tea in the afternoon (or for breakfast if you want a sweet treat in the morning). And while I usually take baked treats to the office to share with my co-workers, I confess to keeping this cake all to myself and not sharing it with a single soul. And after this one attempt I've added it to my go-to recipe repertoire.
