Sofia likes them unadorned.
Unfortunately they are a bit buggy.
Ian volunteered to cut out the bad bits and I peeled them ready for use in an upside down cake. Previously I had used this recipe when making upside down cakes with apricots, but I decided to try this one instead. It says to use two small pears, but we had bits from lots of pears (which added up to more than two, I don't think two would be enough). This is my attempt to "Place the segments of pear decoratively".
It is not a pretty cake (upside downs rarely are), but it was good - especially with a dollop of marscapone. Next time I will probably combine the two recipes. I like the caramel in the first (cooked in a skillet) and the cake in the second (a bit lighter than the first).
