Makes 12-14


* Available at Holland & Barrett


Step 1
Pre-heat your oven to 160c.

Step 2
In a bowl whisk together the butter, agave nectar and eggs.

Step 3
Then using a wooden spoon fold in in the sifted flour, ground almonds, vanilla seeds, ground ginger, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.

Step 4
The pears need to be peeled and very finely diced; I recommend using a julienne slicer which makes quick work of this.

Step 5
Before adding to the mixture, gather the diced pears in your hands and squeeze out the juice. Then fold in the pears and crystallised ginger.

Step 6
Spoon into your cake cases, giving the tray a few taps on the counter to even the mix out before baking them for 20 minutes or until a tooth pick pricked into the centre of a cake comes out clean.
