You know a cake’s going to be good when it’s basically just the combination of two already-delicious desserts. This here recipe by Lorraine Elliott from Not Quite Nigella teams poached pears with a rich chocolate cake, and quite frankiy, what’s not to like? Making one is as simple as submerging whole pears in an assortment of spices, whacking them into a tin with some cake batter and pre-occuping your eyeballs with some Netflix until they come out of the oven all gooey and yum. There, afternoon tea sorted.
To celebrate baking season, we've teamed up with Woolworths on a special offer: pick up frankie issue 90, and you can also nab a Wiltshire baking pan for a mere two bucks. Hey, you could even use it to whip up this yummy-looking thing.
