Sticky Date and Pear Cake


It is pear season in Australia, which means they're very cheap at the moment.
Pear cakes are on top of the list of my favourites; this-one belongs to the special group of irresistible-ones.

Ingredients:
1 cup dates (dried)
1 cup water
1 tsp baking soda
125 g butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 large (or 2 small) egg
3 ripe pears, peeled and diced
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups SR flour
Topping-
3/4 cup brown sugar
60 g butter
1/2 cup cream (35% fat)

Method:
Boil dates, water and baking soda for 2-3 minutes; take off the heat, slightly mash with a fork and let it cool.
Preheat oven to 170*C; prepare 20-22 cm cake tin, line with baking paper.
Beat butter, sugar and egg until light and fluffy. Add pears, flour, cinnamon and date mixture. Mix well. Pour into the tin and bake for 50-60 minutes. Take out and let it cool.
For topping- boil all ingredients in a heavy bottomed pan. Take off and let it cool.
Take the cake out of tin and pour topping over it. Slice the cake and enjoy!



'Ljepljivi' kolac sa Datulama i Kruskama

Sezona je krusaka u Australiji, sto znaci da su trenutno jako jeftine. Kolaci sa kruskama su mi medju najdrazima, a ovaj pripada skupini neodoljivih.

Potrebno:
1 solja datula (susenih)
1 solja vode
1 k sode bb
125 gr maslaca
3/4 solje secera
1 vece (ili 2 manja) jajeta
3 zrele kruske, oguljene i sjecene na kockice
1 k cimeta
1 1/2 solja samodizajuceg brasna
Preliv-
3/4 solje braon secera
60 gr maslaca
1/2 solje slatke pavlake / vrhnja (35% masnoce)

Nacin:
Kuhajte datule, vodu i sodu oko 2-3 minute; smaknite, viljuskom izgnjecite blago i ostavite prohladiti.
Ukljucite rernu na 170*C; pripremite obruc (20-22 cm) i oblozite ga neprijanjajucim papirom.
Miksajte maslac, jaje i secer dok ne postane pjenasto. Ubacite kruske, brasno, cimet i smjesu sa datulama i lagano izmijesajte. Uspite u kalup i pecite 50-60 minuta. Prohladite.
Za preliv- prokuhajte sve sastojke, smaknite s vatre i ostavite hladiti. 
Postavite kolac na servirajucu posudu, prelijte sa prelivom. Rezite i uzivajte!
