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 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.

  • This weekend we were invited to go visit the Easter Bunny. I knew the girls would be excited about it, but I didn’t realize HOW EXCITED, until we got there. They were hopping around, giving hugs and high fives and sneaking into the chocolate basket.⁣⠀

  • When I think about my childhood, bike riding is one of the first things that comes to mind. Spring and summer days we were always cruising down the streets with my sisters or making makeshift jumps from random pieces of wood.⁣
⁣
Soooo pumped to have all the kids on a bike this year and finalllllyyyyy getting a bike for myself so that we can create some of those same memories with our kids.⁣

All the gear came from @canadiantire, bikes, helmets and I even those colourful beads for the spokes to make noise as they peddle. Did you have those as a kid too? #sponsored #CanadasFunStore
