The original name of the cake from the book, Coffee Cake by Lou Seibert Pappas is Pear Pinwheel and Hazelnut cake . I excluded the word "pinwheel" from mine because I didnt form a pinwheel on the cake..simply because mine was rather a small cake, just a 4 inch one and i thought it's rather a little messy for me to arrange and probably trim the pears to shape a pinwheel. Another thing is that i didnt want to spend much time forming the pinwheel on the batter sitting there. Haiiz, i sounded like i'm giving excuses here..okay, i'm just lazy ...but please take a look at all my fellow friends who did their pinwheel cake HERE, they are look great! i made 1/2 of the recipe in a 4inch baking tin and adjusted the sugar amount to 20gm brown and 10gm white sugar, you can get the full recipe from Zoe's post here
|texture of the cake is quite nice..moist and tasted nutty..after shooting these photos, i realised how miserable just those few slices of pear looked, looked as if i'm so stingy on my pears..LOL!|
This is the 4th cake we are baking at The Home Bakers. Huuh, 56 more bakes to go!! Estimated another slightly more than 2 years to complete all the recipes from the book. Whose crazy idea? Joyce's. All are welcomed to join the club, not late at all!
