Duration: 50 minutes | Difficulty: Easy | Servings: 6


60g unsalted butter, room temperature
100g caster sugar
2 eggs
100g That’s Amore Traditional Ricotta
100g Greek yoghurt
160g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 small corella pears, halved
2 tbsp icing sugar


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

2. Meanwhile, using the softened butter, mix with the caster sugar for 4-5 minutes.

3. Then, add the eggs, one at a time. Beat until fluffy. Add the That’s Amore Traditional ricotta and the Greek yoghurt, mix until well combined.

4. In the same bowl as the egg and ricotta batter, sift in the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the ricotta mixture until well incorporated. Set aside.

5. Line a 23cm cake tin with baking paper, pour in the mixture and spread evenly. Top with the halved pears.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 mins or until cooked through. Once ready, take it out and let it cool completely before dusting with icing sugar.
