Sour Cream & Pear Coffee Cake

Why spend almost $3 to buy a slice of coffee cake when you can make it at home with zero difficulty and very simple ingredients? Seriously you must give this recipe a try! Looks amazing yet so simple!


This recipe adopted from LandO’Lakes recipe. Here is all you need to make this coffee cake:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1/2  teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 pears, unpeeled, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

You must preheat oven to 350F before you prepare the cake because it really does not take any time! 

Mix flour, ground ginger, baking powder, baking soda and salt together and set aside.

Combine sugar and egg together and whisk until pale yellow and fluffy.  Then fold in half of the sour cream.

Then sift in 2/3 the flour mixture.  Then fold for less than 10 stroke!  (yes count please, avoid over mix is the key!).  Add in the rest of the sour cream and the sift in rest of the flour.  Fold again for another 15 strokes!!

Spread into greased 9-inch spring-form pan, pie pan or round cake pan. Arrange pear slices in pin wheel fashion on top of batter; sprinkle with brown sugar, if desired. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre come out clean.
