I've made this cake many times in the past. So easy and always turns out perfect.
Melt 1 stick of butter. Drizzle about 1 TBS of the melted butter in a small loaf pan, sprinkle in some brown sugar, then layer sliced pears. Mix together the rest of the melted butter with 4 TBS of brown sugar, 6 TBS of flour, 1 tsp of baking powder, 2 tsp of powdered ginger and 1 egg. Pour your batter over the sliced pears. Bake in 350 degree oven until golden. Yum!
Uh oh! I just saw lightning and the wind is howling. Hope all is well in your corner of the world.
