In preparation for the Real Food Ilkley market stall on Sunday 5th November, I’ve been creating some seasonal flavours for you all. The first flavour is pumpkin cake with maple cinnamon buttercream and cinnamon streusel, check these out here.
This blog focuses on the second flavour that will feature at my market stall; pear and cardamom cake with brown butter glaze. They have a lovely savoury sponge with the fragrance of the cardamom balancing well with the delicate pear. The brown butter glaze brings it all together and adds a kick of sweetness to the bundt cakes, I think they’ll be a hit!
I’ve never been a big fan of pears because of the texture, but they have a lovely taste once grated into a cake! I’ve baked quite a lot with cardamom in the last year and I absolutely love the bold flavour, it tastes so good with autumn spices such as cinnamon and ginger. Earlier this year I made rhubarb, ginger and cardamom cupcakes and I think they are still my favourite flavour to date, I can’t wait till it’s rhubarb season to make these again! The recipe for these is here if you fancy taking a look.
Keep an eye out for the next autumnal flavour that i’ll be announcing this week!
