This tart is a delicious change from the average fruit tart. A shortcrust pastry case is filled with fresh pears and a spongecake batter, before being baked to perfection. Serve on its own, with whipped cream, ice cream or custard.
I followed the recipe only adding a tiny pinch of ground ginger and 3 pears. The tart tasted lovely but it was a very wet mixture taking 1 hour 10 mins . - 27 Sep 2015
I used a pre-baked pie case so the pastry wasn't great but the filling was really good and I would recommend the recipe if you want to make a quick tart with some extra pears. - 13 Sep 2013
I liked this pie. However, I followed the recipe of one of the reviewers. I also used 1/3 C butter and 1/3 C sugar and I also used 6 pears. When I make it again I will add cinnamin to the custard to add a little more flavor. I did sprinkle cinnamin and sugar on the top of the pie once it came out of the oven. that added a little more flavor. My husband LOVED it! - 07 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
