Pear and almond cake

For the broken dough:
250 grs. of flour
125 grs. of cold butter Lorenzana without salt of Mantequera de Tineo
1 yolk of egg
1 pinch of salt
30 grs. of sugar
50 ml. of cold water

For filling:
1 large pear
50 grs. of butter Lorenzana without salt of Mantequera de Tineo
50 grs. of sugar
50 grs. of flour
80 grs. of ground almonds
1 little beaten egg
1 splash of vanilla extract
1 splash of milk
2 tablespoons of peach jam


Cut the butter into cubes.
We put all the ingredients in the bowl of the blender and mix everything until obtaining a smooth and homogeneous mass.
We shape the ball, wrap it with plastic wrap and leave it in the refrigerator 1 1/2 before using it, although if you prepare it the day before it is better.

We spread the dough with the rolling pin and cover a mold, cover the dough with vegetable paper and put on top a weight of dried vegetables.
We put in the oven preheated to 180º for 10 minutes.We remove from the oven, remove the vegetables and return to bake another 10 minutes or until the dough is a little browned. Let it cool.
For the filling peel the pear, we cut it in half and remove the seeds.We cut into thin slices.
Beat the butter with the sugar until the mixture is creamy, let's go adding the egg first, then the other ingredients. Mix well and pour into the mold, put on the pear slices and bake 20 minutes.
Paint with the warm jam when the cake is still hot.

I want to thank Mantequera de Tineo and especially to Lucía Martínez for her kindness, sending two cans of Lorenzana butter for her to taste.
I have to say that in this first recipe that I have used it the result has been great, especially the taste of the broken dough that has been very good.




In case you still do not know this company, I leave you a little information.


Tineo's Butter is a company of the Asturian West dedicated to the elaboration of traditional butter following the artisan process.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, its reference brands, Imperial Butter and Butter Lorenzana, have been present in the homes of several generations.
The raw material used is the same for both Imperial Butter and Lorenzana Butter.The production process of Lorenzana is slower to get a butter with a softer texture. On the contrary, Imperial is a butter with a stronger texture and a more intense color. The artisanal production process of both preserves the characteristic flavor and aroma of real butter.

Have I really never published my pancake recipe yet? Apparently not. Then it will be high time. Today is such a wonderful summer day in spring and that's why my classic pancakes came out again. Of course in the sun on the terrace. To make real fluffy pancakes is actually very easy and here I like it also classic and simple. There are many varieties with sour cream, buttermilk, etc., but my favorit...

Fennel and cheese cake

Fennel and cheese cake Several years have passed (I think 3), since we sowed the fennel, I already had hopes lost that some bulb would come out, and finally, as if by magic, three have appeared. You can imagine the illusion that has made me, so neither short nor lazy I started to prepare my first recipe with him, a cake, which in honor of the tru...

These cookies were made for my son to take to a meeting with the bellmen of ...

 an illuminated lane in the nighttime Barcelona

After a few vacation-related absence days, I'll get back to you with a short travel report! What do you do on vacation? Of course, eat well! I have relatives in Barcelona and travel since infancy to this beautiful city on the Mediterranean. For me, there are no more typical tourist visits, but it is more of a "come home" and I know exactly where I want to go and what I want to do. This year, it wa...
