Plumcake pear and lemon – Italian Cuisine


Whip the eggs with the sugar and the grated rind of the lemon until you get a swollen and fluffy mixture.

Add the oil, lemon juice and water. Then add the flour and the yeast and work until a smooth dough is obtained.

Peel the pears and cut into cubes. Add them to the dough and mix to make them well incorporated.

Pour the mixture into an oiled and floured plumcake mold. Then cook in preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 35 minutes

Let the plumcake cool with pears and lemon before serving.
