Caramel, Pear & Almond Cakes

Today's post is in honour of the Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea!

It's happening right around the country today and for the next month or so, and is SUCH a worthwhile cause, AND celebrating it's 20th year!  Amazing!  So if you're hosting a morning tea, or just want an excuse to have a yummy treat, here's a lovely little recipe - and don't forget to send a few dollars the Cancer Council's way!

The recipe is initially from Stay At Home Mum and I just made a few adjustments :-)

2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups pears (cored, peeled and chopped)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup flaked almonds

In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon and sugar. Add oil, eggs, pears and vanilla.

Mix until just combined.

Pour into muffin pans then sprinkle almonds on top.

Bake at 165 degrees for about 20 minutes.
