The following recipe was a little complicated but worth it. The batter was delicious and the end result was a very moist and not too sweet for in the morning.The recipe was adapted from the Taste of Home Magazine.
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
3 medium ripe pears, peeled and sliced (about 2 cups)
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup Greek plain yogurt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
In a small bowl, combine the pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Place flour in a small bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 3/4 cup of nut mixture; set aside for topping. Set aside remaining nut mixture for filling.
In a small bowl add pears with lemon juice; set aside. In another bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream and yogurt mixture, beating well after each addition.
Spread two-thirds of the batter into a greased 9-inch springform pan. Top with the reserved nut mixture, pears and remaining batter. Sprinkle with pecans and reserved topping mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 55-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen. Cool for 1 hour before cutting. Approx 12 servings. Enjoy!
Cheri Savory Spoon
Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
