Yield: Yields two 10-inch cakes
The firm, slightly grainy texture of Bosc pears is perfect for baking because it helps the pears keep their shape, an important factor for the finished appearance of these cakes with their pretty fans of caramelized pear slices. The cakes actually taste better the next day, after the pears have released a bit of their moisture, making this an ideal make-ahead dessert for the holidays.
Make Ahead Tips
You can make the cakes up to two days ahead; they actually taste better after a day and are easier to slice. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and store at room temperature.
