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.

6 Servings | 25 minute prep | 50 minute bake

Ingredients

• 2 medium sized, ripe pears

• 1/2 tsp cinnamon
• pinch nutmeg
• 6 tbs all purpose flour
• 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.

  • Third day back from Spring break and these @boomsmoothies have been a real treat in the mornings. Each pack has two servings (or one mama servings and 2 kid servings), they are filled with a variety of fruits and veggies and only take seconds to make in the morning. I'd call that a breakfast win!

  • Walked away from tonight's @vancitybusinessbabes event feeling so good. Such a pleasure to chat alongside @erintreloar of @rawbeautytalks and @thevancouveriteblog to a room full of eager business babes. I got a few great things out of tonight, the best was being told that my offline self very much reflects my online self. This means so much to me as I aim to be as true to myself (and all of you) as possible online but you just never know how others perceive it.
