How to make Upside Down Pear Ginger Cake Recipe

  1. To begin making Upside Down Pear Ginger Cake Recipe, in a saucepan add butter, honey, sugar and grated ginger. Let the syrup melt and cook until it becomes golden.

  3. Remove from heat and pour this syrup into the prepared cake tin or ovenproof frying pan.

  4. Arrange pear slices in the cake tin or frying pan which you are using. Set aside.

  5. Preheat oven to 350 degree F and grease. In a mixing bowl sift together whole wheat flour, baking powder.

  6. Add in ground almonds and set aside. In another mixing bowl beat together olive oil and sugar.
