Almond and pear quick cake

The advantage with cakes is that since you put only good things in them, you do not take much risk creating new recipes or improvising on quantities! (Well it depends… My beloved siblings sometimes come up with surprising tastes and mixtures! But it is always worth trying)

Inspired from two of my recipes: Yoghurt cake and Financier, here is the recipe of the cake I made for a friend’s birthday and after exam treat!
