The inspiration for this amazingly juicy and tasty cake came from this publication in one of my favourite Bulgarian cooking blogs. Yesterday I made it with apples and today - with pears and I can recommend both - turns out pears too go well with cinnamon and vanilla.
- 3 pears / apples
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 50 g butter
- 5 g baking powder
- cinnamon, vanilla
Beat the eggs with the sugar. Add the butter (melted) and the flour with the baking powder. Pour the batter in a greased baking dish (26 cm), spread the cut fruit on top and sprinkle with cinnamon, vanilla and sugar. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C.
Why hooligan - the author called it that because you cut the fruit into irregular forms and just throw the pieces on top without much order or symmetry concerns :)
