Comments Off on Hazelnut Pear Torte Recipe

Last night we had a family Thanksgiving dinner and I was in charge of making the dessert. I left it till the last minute (eeek!) and was trying to figure out what would be super delicious and easy to make. We were over at my husband’s Aunt’s house when she suggested doing a pear torte. I couldn’t really remember if I had tried anything like it before, but she assured me that it would be simple and taste good. We have a fridge full of pears from my in-law’s farm, so this recipe was sounding better then ever. We got home that afternoon, I was able to put it together with ease and ended up substituting the vanilla out with hazelnut syrup since we were out.

The results were better then I could have imagined. I am not the most experienced baker so when everyone at dinner was complementing me on the great dessert, it felt pretty good! I couldn’t help but put together another batch today, take some photos and share the recipe that I used. If you are planning on using this recipe insure to double the recipe to increase serving size.

6 Servings | 25 minute prep | 50 minute bake

Ingredients

• 2 medium sized, ripe pears

• 1/2 tsp cinnamon

• 1/2 tsp baking powder
• 1/8 tsp salt
• 1/4 cup butter, room tempurature
• 1/2 cup granulated sugar
• 1 egg
• 1/2 tsp hazelnut syrup
• vanilla ice cream, optional for serving

Instructions

1 | Preheat over the 350F (180C), lightly grease 6 inch baking pan

2 | Peel, pit and cut pears. Cut in half and then slice halves into .5cm wedges. In a medium sized bowl mix together 1tsp granulated sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg. Add sliced pears tossing until each pear is coated.

3 | In another medium sized bowl mix together6 tbs flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, and 1/8 tsp salt. Put aside for later.

4 | Use a large mixing bowl (with a hand mixer or food processor) combine 1/4 cup butter (room temperature) and 1/2 cup of sugar. Mix until well blended. Add in you egg while mixing, followed by 1/2 tsp of hazelnut syrup.

5 | Continue mixing and slowing add in flour, mix until well blended, scrap sides down and continue to mix. When done, add mixture to baking pan and cover with chopped pears in an arrangement to your liking.

6 | Place in the middle of preheated over at 350F (180C) for 45-50 minutes. Test with a toothpick. Remove when done and set aside to cool. Once cooled remove from pan and add toppings to your desire (I added chopped pecans and icing sugar sprinkled on top). Serve with ice cream.

My husband made a comment that the dessert would be good with a morning tea or coffee. This simple recipe might come more in handy than I thought and might just become a fall staple in our house this time of year. Enjoy!

The original version of this recipe is posted here. I have altered it to my liking.

  • There are quite a few new faces around here since the last time I did a little "things about me" introduction. I love sharing strange bits about me and knowing who else out there can relate. Make sure to let me know in the comments. So let's get going on one shall we.⠀
1. Hey, I'm Codi Lynn. People close to me call me Codi. My name has forever been spelled wrong, one time the guy at Starbucks spelt it right and my eyes got so wide in shock... then I realized I was wearing a name tag.⠀
2. I haven't always had glasses, when I was halfway through my pregnancy with Sophie I realized I could no longer read the TV guide without squinting. When I got my prescription I found out it is common for pregnant woman to loose their eyesight... just another joy of pregnancy right there.⠀
3. I only just figured out how to pencil in my eye brows and not gonna lie, pretty pumped about it.⠀
4. A part of me wants to move away and experience more of the world but then the majority of me never wants to leave the area where my Mom, Dad and sisters are.⠀
5. My husband is convinced that one day I will like mushrooms. That's never going to happen. •

  • Somehow these two + Ezra made it into bed before 8 tonight, I'd call that a summer miracle.
•
This summer bed times have been all over the place. Do you as a family stick to a routine or find you stay up later in the summer months? Love to hear how you guys roll! We are pretty well all over the place with some decently late nights lately, which made tonight feel so so good.

  • Had a night away tonight and I have a couple things to say about it.
1. I bought the new Almond Frap from Starbucks on the way out and it was 👎🏻😩🤢 Anyone else tried it? Better yet, what's your fav Starbucks cold drink?
2. Tonight speaking at @briteup_etsyyvr's social media event was such a joy. I LOVE LOVE LOVE connecting with people in real life and being and able to share what I've learned to help them reach their goals. Seriously, such a thrill!
