A store cupboard staple will make this low-calorie cake even easier...

By poaching your own pears for this cake, you can fragrance them with any flavours you like. Herbs, aromats, ginger, citrus - pretty much anything. Even bay works brilliantly when used subtly. 

That said, for this pear cake, we went quick and easy - we just used half a tin (drained) of pears. Soft, scented and beautiful when paired with our vanilla sponge, this is a perfect cake for elevenses. 

Paint the top of the cake with a little low sugar syrup to give it that delicious looking, sticky glaze.
