Choclette @ Tin and Thyme
small pears - cored but not peeled
I used a duck egg
or half wholemeal, half plain
crystallised ginger - chopped
Grind the almonds in a blender or food processor (I used my Optimum G2.3).
Add two of the pears along with the coconut oil and blend for a minute or two or until the pears are pureed.
Add the honey and eggs and blend again until well mixed.
Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl. Make a well in the centre, then pour in the nut batter and gently mix in stirring from the inside outwards.
Stir in the crystallised ginger.
Divide the mixture between 9 cupcake cases.
Thinly slice the remaining pear and arrange on top of the cakes.
Sprinkle a little of the sugar over each one.
Bake at 180℃ for 20 minutes or until the cakes are well risen and a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Great cakes for eating around the fire on Bonfire Night.
