Whole Wheat Pear Almond Cakes

Jump to Recipe || Print Recipe
Healthy and tasty individual cakes made with pears, almonds whole wheat and some chocolate chips. Too good to resist this Holiday season.

These whole wheat pa almond cakes are irresistibly delicious and perfect to finish with evening coffee or tea. One of my friends served these as individual cakes when we were visiting her a few weeks back.

We all loved these and I knew I had to get the recipe, that’s when I asked her and she showed me this magazine. Once I started glancing through the magazine, it was like a goldmine for food bloggers. I immediately clicked pictures of most of the recipes in the magazine.

Sometimes, we bloggers do whatever we can to find a recipe, food prop o even backdrops. I mean, seriously, literally, we can do anything, cross all limits, and don’t even think how weird it could be, right? When I think of the way I was clicking pictures at her house, I laugh out loud sometimes.

Anyways I tweaked the recipe a little for our taste preferences and used whole wheat instead of self-raising flour and yoghurt instead of eggs. The cakes came out perfect in taste and texture both.

    I like including fruits in my bakes. It gives such nice fruity flavor to the bake. Using pear puree is very innovative.

  14. Today only, I had pear muffins at hotel Leela in my breakfast and loved them so much that devices to make them as soon as I’ll reach at my place. Now you have given the recipe making it easier for me to make these delicious cupcakes.

  15. I’ve baked muffins with pear bits but you’ve given me the idea to add the puree too. And using wheat flour is a great idea. Yummy cakes.
