Chocolate and peanut butter. Strawberries and cream. The world of desserts is full of so many perfect pears. Or, rather, pairs. One of which is ricotta and pears! While this combination might not be as ubiquitous as, say, cinnamon and sugar, it should be! The slight sweetness of the pear and the rich tanginess of the cheese are a match made in flavor heaven.
This cake recipe puts that combination in the spotlight. While not as sweet as the cakes you might be used to, this ricotta and pear cake makes a perfect breakfast, study snack, or afternoon pick-me-up. Serve with strong coffee or tea, and munch while reading, working, or just staring out the window and thinking about all the flavors that make perfect pairs.
