Pear & Cinnamon Teacake Recipe at
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Butter an 8-inch round cake pan.

Whisk the egg white until stiff peaks form. Gradually beat in the sugar, then the egg yolk. Stir in the milk, vanilla, and melted butter. Gently fold in the flour, then pour into the prepared pan. Arrange the pear slices on top. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.


Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a serving plate. While the cake is still hot, brush the top generously with the melted butter. Combine the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the top. Serve the cake warm or cold with the cream or spread with the butter.
