Pour 100g sugar and 100g of butter in a pan, melt both stirring until they start to brown. Add the peeled halved pears in the mix, all the cinnamon, lemon zest and salt. Cover to simmer for 20 minutes until the pears soften.

Meanwhile, coat the inside of the baking dish with half of the remaining butter and dust with the remaining sugar.

Place the dish in the oven and cook for 40 minutes at 200°C.

Once it is ready, take the dish out of the oven and allow it to cool down before serving.  and leave to cool before serving.

I served mine with cream and poppy seeds to finish. Alternatively use roasted almond flakes.

I use very little sugar because I am not a big fan. If your guests have a sweet tooth, serve the cake with a coulis or ice cream.
