Pear Yogurt Autumn Cake (Gluten Free)

I love the unique combination of flours here – almond, buckwheat, and a gluten free blend. This cake is sweet and perfectly paired with autumn spices. Also, it's especially delicious with caramel sauce.

  • 232 g 1 ½ cup GF flour blend
  • 136 g 1 cup almond flour
  • 160 g 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a springform size cake pan with nonstick spray. Line with parchment.
  • Whisk flours, spices, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a medium bowl.
  • In a food processor or blender, puree pears lightly until the consistency of mashed bananas.
  • In a mixer, add pureed pears and sugar. Mix until combined. On medium speed, add eggs on at a time, then oil and vanilla. Finish with sour cream.
  • On low speed, slowly add dry ingredients and mix, just until combined.
  • Scrape batter into pan. Bake cake for 15 minutes.
  • Open oven door. While cake remains in oven, quickly lay pear slices on top. Close oven and continue to bake for another 25-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Total bake time should be 55–65 minutes.
  • Transfer pan to a wire rack and allow to cool for about 20 minutes. Turn out cake onto rack and let cool completely.
