Pear Poppy Seed Cake

Once again, I made a cake for a birthday. This time, it should be something without whipped cream, but rather with fruit and a little lighter. At the current temperatures here in Germany, you might not know it, but it is actually winter. So I decided for a cake with pears. I did not want to exchange the whipped cream with butter cream or something similarly fat, so I made a pear poppy seed cake. The recipe (in German) is once again from Dr. Oetker.

The recipe asks for a ring cake, and many times, my attempts to get the cake out of the baking pan destroyed it completely. Hence, I used my silicone baking pan this time. If you let the cake cool completely before turning it out, you get a beautiful ring cake, even without greasing the form. At the time being, I am a huge fan of silicone baking pans.

The cake is decorated with white chocolate and more poppy seeds, creating a nice effect. I hope it was tasty!
