  • 3/4 cup butter or buttery spread (divided)
  • 2 medium firm but ripe California Bartlett pears (peeled and cored)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Melt 1/4 cup of the butter and spread it in the bottom of a 9-inch round baking pan. Cut each pear into 16 slices and arrange in a circular pattern in prepared dish. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle evenly over the top; press down lightly.

  2. Heat Almond Breeze and the remaining 1/2 cup butter in a small saucepan until butter is melted and Almond Breeze is hot. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in sugar and vanilla. Let cool slightly, then whisk in eggs. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl and stir into Breeze mixture, mixing until batter is smooth. Spread evenly over pears.

  3. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes, then run a knife around the edge of the cake. Place a plate on top and holding on 2 sides with a dish towel, carefully flip over. Remove pan. Makes 10 servings.
