My Pear Tart Recipe

Pear Tart 3Here is the time to use seasonal fruits and make delicious desserts with them.

Last year at about this time of the year I had given you my apple tart recipe, and this year I thought I’ll share my pear tart recipe which is between a pie and cake kind of dessert.

It’s a very easy and quick recipe that anyone can make.

The good part about homemade desserts is that they are delicious and better for you than the ones you buy in stores, because you know that there’s only natural ingredients from scratch in them (no fillers or preservatives).  That’s the primary reason why homemade desserts always test different from box desserts or those you find in stores.

Here are the Ingredient of my Pear Tart (for 12 servings)

– 4 eggs

– 250 grams of sugar

– 250 grams of flour

– 250 grams of butter

– 1 coffee spoon of vanilla extract

– 1 coffee spoon of baking powder

– The juice of a lime

– Two pinches of salt

– 4 pears

– 3 full table spoons of sugar

The Making of the Pear Tart

Start with the pears

Peel and cut the pears in slices and put them in a plastic bowl with a lid. Add 3 full table spoons of sugar, put the lid on and shake well, so every slice of the pears will be sugar coated. Let the pears sit in the bowl while you prepare the cake mixture.

The cake mixture

Separate the yokes from the white into two different large kitchen bowls.

Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and start betting them with an electric mixer until firm.

put the flour in a blow and add the baking powder and a small pinch of salt. Sift all together into another bowl.

In the meantime you should have your butter melting very slowly in a small pot on a low eat. By the time your egg whites are done your butter should be melted. (It doesn’t matter if there’s still a few chucks not totally melted). Make sure you take of the heat before the butter start boiling.

With your electric mixer, mix the yokes, the sugar, the vanilla extract and the lime juice together until you obtain a pale yellow mixture. Then add the melted butter little by little as you keep on mixing.

When the butter is well incorporated start adding the flour little by little. At this time you should have a rubber spatula to wipe clean the edges of the bowl to make sure that everything is well mixed.

Once the flour is well incorporated and your mixture is smooth you’re done.

 Pear 2

Spread your mixture in either a large mold or two smaller molds like mine on the pictures. Then spread the pear slices all over the top.  If you which, slightly spread some sugar throughout the top of the tart.

Put in the oven 30-40 minutes or until golden in color and well done inside. You can plant a clean table knife in the middle to check if it’s done. It’s done when the knife comes out clean.

  1. That sounds very good Sylviane! I love pears, especially if they’re crunchy. Now I also love pie and I do love cake. Gosh, what a fabulous combination here. Man oh man, another recipe to try. I’m going to get so fat! lol…

    Thank you for sharing this, I love your recipes.


    1. Hi Adrienne,

      Well, I’m glad you like pears, because there’re few things you do not like 🙂

      This is a delicious and healthy dessert because pears are good for you, and as I mentioned no nasty preservatives or fillers in here. All natural ingredients 🙂

      Hope you’ll give it a try! Have a great weekend.

  2. Sylviane,
    This sounds absolutely wonderful. You always share such yummy recipes. I have a bunch of pears, I’ll have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing. Lisa

  3. Hi Sylviane

    This sounds lovely. As you know I am not a real sweet tooth but I do like things like this. I know I will never make it though. How the heck do you have time to make things like that when you are so busy. I guess because you like cooking and baking. Both I hate so I never have time 🙂

    I aspire to have a housekeeper again who can cook. 🙂

    Hope you are having a nice weekend.

    1. Hi Sue,

      I had to laugh at what you said, sue. I am very fast in all I do, so nothing takes me a lot of time 🙂 That’s what saves me. I know I’ve got that from my mother, it’s in my genes, but also, when you need to, you have not choice. If I wasn’t the way I am I wouldn’t make it, and neither would have my mother 🙂

      Thanks for coming, Sue 🙂
