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.

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.

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.

  • May have gone a tad overboard on the swim gear a couple of days ago to get them excited for their swim lessons.

Goal: Can never be too prepared.

Reality: The whale floatie popped in our house the day I bought it, the morning of swim lessons was a rush to get ready, I regretted not findinng and organizing all their swimwear the night before, got breakfast through the drive through on the way over and somehow successfully completed day 1 of swim lessons. The kids were all smiles.... for the most part.
  • I was reading an article recently that said floral is the flavour of the year, thanks to the Royals serving a Lemon Elderflower wedding cake. Hopping right on that elderflower trend for this new recipe by experimenting with my new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch sparkling water maker.

Here's what I used: • @sodastream Sparkling Water that I created in seconds at home • Sparkling Elderflower
• Peaches
• Rosemary

Check out my latest blog post for the full recipe. 
Fun Tip: Turn any favourite sparkling water recipe by using half as much sparkling water and adding in your wine of choice (doesn't hurt to top it up with more berries either 😉 )
