I first had these delicious little cakes as part of a lovely afternoon tea at Galgorm Resort & Spa and have wanted to try making them ever since. I ordered a silicone mould from eBay as I wanted them to be the same little oval shape as those ones. They can be made either with pears or raspberries and for my first go at making them I used tinned pears cut into little slices.

Put silicon mould onto baking tray and carefully spoon mixture into it leaving a little gap at the top of each one to allow to rise.  Push little pear chunks into each one and sprinkle with flaked almonds before putting into oven for approximately 15 minutes at 180 degrees. (Pears can be substituted with raspberries depending upon preference)
