Glazed Pear Upside-Down Cake
INGREDIENTS
6 tablespoons butter, divided
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 large pears (8 oz. each), peeled, quartered and cored
1-1/8 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons molasses
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350°F. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a 9" round cake pan in the oven. Remove from oven and sprinkle evenly with brown sugar. Set aside.
Insert the 4mm slicing disc in a Cuisinart® food processor. Stand pear quarters upright in large feed tube and slice using light pressure.
Arrange slices in baking pan, fanning them in a circle. Fill in the center.
Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (baking powder through allspice) in a small bowl; reserve.
Wipe work bowl dry and insert the metal blade. Process remaining butter (4 tablespoons) and sugar until smooth, about 25 - 30 seconds. Scrape bowl. Add egg, buttermilk, vanilla extract and molasses; process 30 seconds to combine.
Scrape work bowl and add dry ingredients. Pulse just until incorporated, about 5 times.
Spread batter evenly over pears. Bake until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool in pan on wire rack. Unmold onto plate and serve warm.
