1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp ground ginger
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
finely grated zest and juice of ½ orange
¼ cup Greek yogurt, or sour cream
¼ cup ground almonds
1 large pear, peeled, cored, and finely sliced
confectioner’s sugar, to dust
For the topping
2 tbsp toasted almond flakes
2 tbsp demerara sugar

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease the cake pan and dust with flour. Cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer or by hand until fluffy. Beat the egg into the creamed mixture.

2 Sift together the flour, baking powder, ground ginger, cinnamon, and salt and mix into the creamed mixture. Mix in the orange zest and juice, yogurt or sour cream, then the almonds. Spread half the cake batter into the pan. Top with the pears and cover with the other half of the batter.
