each ground cloves and ground cardamom
peeled, cored and chopped
sweetened whipped cream
Pre-heat the oven to 180°c and line a 20cm cake pan with baking paper.
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy then beat in the eggs, one at a time.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, spices and salt and in a separate jug, mix together the milk and vanilla.
Add the flour and milk, alternating between the two, and mix well after each addition until the batter is thick and creamy.
Coat the pear in 1 tablespoon of flour. Dust off the excess and mix into the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and place in the oven.
Bake for 60-75 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean. If the cake is browning too fast, simply cover with a piece of foil.
When the cake is baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before serving with whipped cream.
