Pear and cranberry traybake

pear and cranberry traybakeWhat number of Great British Bake Off are we on now? I got waaay behind but here is my Pear and cranberry traybake – I think that was week 3!

Using seasonal pears, dried cranberries and flaked almonds. These have proven to be a big hit in the lunchbox this week and also as an after school snack for the girls, dad on the other hand likes a slice witha cup of tea at about 9pm, when would you have yours?

    Ooh, that looks super tasty, I love pears for baking with. I’m too much of a wuss to eat them as they are as I hate getting sticky, but they’re gorgeous in a cake or crumble!

      Couldn’t agree more with you! I hate getting ‘dirty’ hands too so rarely eat fresh fruit unless it’s bene cut up in a fruit salad – such a wimp. A lazy one too!

    Love how the cranberries on top really brighten it up. Unfortunately I’ve been unable to find cranberries in Italy so may have to experiment with a different topping!

      Definitely experiment, pine nuts for crunch? Uva sultanina, or dried apricots cut up small would be delicious – happy baking!

    Looks lush!
    Am so envious of your gorgeous recipes.
    Would it be wrong to suggest this with a dollop of cornish icecream whilst still warm?? It wouldn’t would it???

    • October 15, 2013 / 4:27 PM

      Ohhh cornish ice cream on top – how indulgent! Sounds a brilliant idea to me
