Hazelnut Pear Torte Recipe

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.

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.

When we hopped into the car today Evelyn declared, “ YESSS MOMMY! We go pick up Sophie and Ezzie now!! Yayyyyy!” Poor thing had four more hours till it was really time.

I’m sharing all the details about my recent experience at @irisvisualgroup on the blog. Talking about what it was like going in with the girls, what age you should first bring your kids and what I’m going to start using during soccer games. Can you believe I have been playing half blind? Link in bio ( there's also more images of the three styles if you want to see before you vote). #ad #irisvisualgroup
  • Tomorrow starts the first full week of kindergarten for that confident girl on the right. I didn’t realize how emotional I was about the whole thing, until her first full day and I was basically a big giant mess. Here’s to hoping I can hold it together.
  • Overwhelmed by the number of you that responded to my stories today. Parenting is hard. Some days so much harder than others. The good thing is, we don’t have to do it alone. When we open up and share (like I did this morning to someone I’ve only met a few times) we give ourselves an opportunity to learn and grow. My hope for all of you is that through your journey, you constantly seek, grow and share. It makes a difference.
  • Drove out to @centralcitysurrey tonight with this girl. Lots of laughs as we tried on our five looks for this Friday’s fashion show! Say what!?

There’s going to be six of us walking the runway from 12:00 - 1:30 PM, plus tons of other activities happening right by the food court ($500 mall giveaway draw, selfie station, beauty demos and more) — come on out and cheer us on

  • I made simple syrup for the first time at home and two things:
1. DANG that's good!
2. It's WAYYYY easier then I anticipated
•
After cruising a handful of different simple syrup recipes online I combined a few that I thought would work, reduced the sugar and substituted cream of tartar for lemon juice. For some reason I never like to follow the directions the first time and always like to try out my own... it doesn't always work out, but this time it sure did!! You can see more of the steps in my stories for how to make your own simple syrup and sparkling water using the new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch at home. I always love when things turn out easier than expected! Does anyone want the full recipe on the blog?
