3 medium pears (any type), peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
3 large eggs
1/2 cup and 2 tablespoons (134 g) sugar
2 3/4 cups (247 g) almond meal
1 tablespoon (8 g) ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon (4 g) baking powder
1/2 teaspoon (2 g) salt
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Grease a 8x4x2-1/2-inch loaf pan or a 8x8-inch square pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with a wire whisk until homogeneous.
Add baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; mix well.
Add the almond meal; mix well.
Fold in the pear cubes.
Pour the batter (quite thick) into the prepared pan, and bake on a rack positioned in the middle of the oven until the cake passes the toothpick test (about one hour for the loaf pan and 40-50 minutes for the square pan).
Let the cake cool completely in the pan before unmolding and slicing.
