Ingredients

For the batter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch round cake pan then cut out a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of the pan and place in the bottom.
  2. Place a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the ghee and sugar and whisk until the sugar dissolves. Then add pear slices. Sprinkle with cinnamon and cardamon and toss until pears become soft. About 5 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Once cool to the touch, arrange in the bottom of the cake pan however you'd prefer. I did a fan pattern which left me with a few leftover pear slices. But you can make any decision you'd like. Once the pears are arranged in the pan, pour the rest of the caramel mixture that's in the saute pan on top of the pears.
  4. In a large bowl, add almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cardamon, and salt. Whisk until combine.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, ghee, coconut sugar, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Whisk until coconut sugar dissolves.
  6. Add liquid mixture to the dry mixture and mix until combine.**
  7. Pour batter on top of the pear caramel mixture and smooth out on top.
  8. Place in oven to bake for 40-43 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Begin checking the cake at around 35 minutes since oven temperatures will range.
  9. Let cake rest for 10 minutes outside the oven then place a plate or a cake stand over it, flip then tap the bottom of the cake pan to make sure it comes out.
  10. Cut into slices then serve!

Recipe Notes

*I used maple sugar in this recipe because i like the flavor and the color of maple sugar better than coconut sugar.
**Since different tapioca flours and coconut flours sometimes react differently, you may need to add a little more almond milk. If the batter seems to thick and does not pour, add a bit more almond milk.
