One of our favourite food bloggers, Béa, from La Tartine Gourmande makes and photographs some pretty special looking cakes, although she prefers to call them "Gâteau." This is Bea's "Gâteau au gingembre frais et aux poires - Pear Cake with Fresh Ginger" I believe this would be the perfect cake for making ahead of a simple Autumn dinner with friends, wouldn't you agree?! I love the sound of the pear and ginger combination and it looks so crumbly, moist and delicious! As a nation we Kiwis are fairly fond of ginger, it would seem we adore baking with ginger anyway. With pears also being so abundant and at definitely at their best right now. Who needs anymore convincing?!
