Pear Quarters in Clear Fruit Juice

Grown under the sun in the Hawke's Bay orchards, Wattie's pears are hand-picked and then packed at the peak of their flavour for natural goodness.

Method

Step 1
1. Beat the butter, sugar and lemon rind together until light and fluffy and then beat in the eggs one at a time.
Step 2
2. Sift the self-raising flour and fold into the creamed mixture with the semolinana and yoghurt.
Step 3
3. Turn into a lightly greased and base-lined 24cm cake tin. Arrange the Wattie's Pear Quarters evenly on top.
Step 4
4. Bake at 180°C for 1 hour and 15 minutes until golden.
Step 5
5. Make the reserved pear juice up to 1 cup with lemon juice and heat with the sugar until dissolved.
Step 6
6. Once the cake is cooked, pierce the top with a skewer and slowly pour the syrup over the cake while hot and in the tin. Cool for 1 hour in the tin before turning out. Serve with extra yoghurt on the side.
