How to make Pear Streusel Cake

  1. The pears are used in this cake should not be too ripe nor too green or unripe. Peel and then core the middle part properly, use only the flesh. Then dice them into bite size pieces.
  2. Preheat oven to 180 degreeC or 375 degreeF. In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients e.g. flour, baking powder, powdered sugar and salt. Mix well together and keep aside.
  3. In another bowl, mix eggs, butter and milk. This is your wet ingredients. Beat with an electric beater till smooth. Then add the dry ingredients slowly into the wet ingredients bowl and mix till smooth.
  4. When done with all dry ingredients, mix the chopped pears and add cinnamon powder into the bowl. Give it a mix and your batter is ready.
  5. Now prepare the crumb : take all the ingredients into a bowl, just mix with your fingers until crumbs form. Keep aside.
  6. Grease your baking pan with little butter, then pour the batter into the pan, then sprinkle the crumb allover the batter uniformly. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the topping gets a nice brown color and dries up.
  7. Insert a toothpick in the center, that should also come clean. Then your cake is ready. Cool on wire rack and then cut into squares.
  8. Enjoy with a hot cup of tea or coffee, my kids had them on their breakfast, wholesome and healthy.

My Tip:

The pears are used in this cake should not be too ripe nor too green or unripe. To make this cake more healthy, I used brown sugar instead of regular sugar. Brown sugar combines with pears, cinnamon and nutmeg very well.
