If you're looking for a delicious baking cake look no further as this gluten-free upside-down pear cake is very good.
When you're done baking, you'll have a fluffy, moist cake that has tender caramelized pears on top. It is the perfect sweet cake for afternoon tea or dessert.
There are some fair steps to make this cake, but it's worth the effort. You can take some shortcuts, but I recommend you follow the recipe.
I recommend using fresh pears for best results. If you decide to use canned pears, be sure to dry them as much as possible. Too much liquid will ruin the candy. Canned pears can also be cooked to be very soft.
There are so many extras that you can have with this cake. All of the usual extras are great, like cream, hot pastry, or even a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream.
This cake is ideal for using some pears. If you have even more than you need to cook, you can always try cooking some poached pears. They are so incredibly delicious.

Leftovers are worth storing, as the cake will stay moist for a few days, especially if it's covered and stored in the refrigerator. I love leftovers for breakfast or as a snack.

Gluten-free upside-down pear cake recipe
Preparation time30 minutes
Time to cook1 hour and 30 minutes
Total time2 hours
- 75 g (2.6 oz) unsalted butter
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 4 pears, peeled and cut into 5 mm (0.03 in) slices
- Preheat an oven to 350 ° F (180 ° C).
- Grease and cover the base of a 26 cm (10.2 in) cake pan with baking paper.
- In a skillet, melt brown sugar and butter. Stir to combine, then set aside.
- Place the sliced pear in the spiral cake pan. Pour the sugar mixture over the top of the sliced pears.
- In a mixer, add the butter and icing sugar. Whisk until smooth and fluffy.
- Beat the eggs one by one.
- Sift into gluten-free plain flour, baking powder, spices, and almond flour. Gently mix with the wet ingredients while slowly pouring in the milk.
- Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan.
- Bake in the oven for 1.5 hours.
- Let cool for 5 minutes in the cake pan.
- Remove from the can and let cool.
- Serve and enjoy.
- If the cake seems to brown too much on top, then cover it with aluminum foil so it can finish baking without burning.
- As I mentioned earlier, it's best to use fresh, un-tinned pears for this cake.
- Adding cold eggs to the butter mixture can cause it to break. If this is the case, just continue with the preparation, as it won't ruin your cake.
- Make sure your yeast is gluten free as there are some brands that contain gluten.

It is important to remember that this information is only an estimate, since I used an online calculator to solve it.
There are many other gluten-free cakes that you should try. If you feel like eating something a little less fruity, then the chocolate cake is worth baking.
Another dessert you should try is a gluten-free lime pie. It is deliciously creamy and has that citrus flavor that we have all loved with a traditional lime pie.
