When we called in to see the FOOBY team in Basel, we didn’t want to turn up empty-handed and so we baked our delicious pear cake. Flo from the FOOBY team loved it so much that we would like to dedicate this one to him. :-) At least, we can’t ever eat a slice without thinking of him now. The great thing about this cake is that you can adapt it easily to any season. In summer you can use mixed berries instead of pears, and in autumn it tastes fantastic with plums. You can also adapt the spices. For example, we like to use a little pink pepper with the berry version and lots of cinnamon and tonka beans in the plum cake.
