This is a simple and delicious recipe from the pen of Patricia Wells. Enjoy.
My computer is being bad and you images have not loaded, however best wishes for the New Year .. onward and upward!! Back soon. c
Computers can be very, very annoying. Hope it sorts itself out. Hope all’s well on the farm.
Happy New Year Roger!
Many thanks Greg. The same to you and Katherine:)
It’s a very good recipe:)
A delicious-looking first slice of the year! All the best (and many varied slices) for 2013!
Glad you like it.Happy New Year:)
Happy New Year Roger! That looks lovely. I’m looking forward to doing a bit more food blogging from the country, our new home. And hoping 2013 is an improvement on 2012.
Looking forward to your new blogs. Enjoy your new home and all the best for 2013:)
Oh, yum. Thanks for a fab year,Roger: looking forward to many more gorgeous recipes and food shoots this year…
Happy New Year, Kate:)
Happy New Year! Eat more cookies!
I certainly shall – but I’ll call them biscuits! Happy New Year:)
It’s been a pleasure visiting you throughout 2012, Roger, and I look forward to returning here just as often during 2013. May it be a good year for you, Jenny, and your family.
The same goes for me, John. Happy New Year to you and yours:)
A perfect recipe – here´s wishing you a perfect year!
I couldn’t hope for a better sentiment.Happy New Year to you both:)
Delicious…! Happy New Year dear Roger!! 🙂
And to you, Giovanna:)
Here’s to a sweet year, Roger. I have some Asian pears in the bottom drawer of the fridge…..
I can think of a good use for them! Have a brilliant 2013:)
This is the best slice of life for the beginning of 2013!! All the best to you and yours, Roger!! Looking forward to seeing you in 2013!! xx
Thanks Barbara. Let’s hope 2013 will be a great year for everyone:)
What an excuse to have cake 😉 ! Isn’t that twice running now . . . 🙂 !
The old cake is dead. Long live the cake:)
Happy New Year! Looks like a fine way to see in 2013 🙂
A pretty fattening way, but certainly pretty nice. Have a good 2013:)
I had my fair share yesterday and today (homemade pancakes this AM were divine) so to me, good food is essential for a good year…
A great way to start the New Year! Happy New Year, Roger.
Many thanks and a happy New Year to you too:)
That is my kind of cake…I like simple desserts like this.
You’re a good judge. It looks an ordinary cake, but it is packed with fruit and flavour. It also benefits/suffers from my least favourite word by being “moist”:)
Roger, a gorgeous photo, and what looks surely to be an amazing cake! ( I’ve never been disappointed in anything Ive ever tried of Patricia Wells. ) Happy New Year to you and Jenny! Wishing you both all the best!
Same to you Antoinette. I have a similar experience with Patricia Wells. Only her and Elizabeth David stand the “no disappointment” test.
Roger made this cake look so scrummy when he photographed it in his bit on Myrrh Balls last month (last year!) that I had to get hold of the recipe book. I love pears anyway, raw, cooked, tinned, il n’importe quoi. I found a copy on Amazon for a penny – it’s a great book. The only slight shame is that there are no pictures of the food, and I like (need) to know what a recipe is supposed to look like when I’ve made it. So, Roger, what we should do is re-issue the book with you taking the pictures – at least then we’d have the pleasure of eating our way from beginning to end. Now there’s a project for the New Year!
What a great idea Martyn. Ironically,none of my favourite cookbooks have pictures in them. But I certainly like your idea for making it a project:)
Patricia Wells is a favorite but I have not seen this recipe before. Sounds like a “must try.” Thanks, Roger, and have a Healthy, Tasteful 2013.
It’s worth making. We have such good pears at the moment that I make it every week:)
