Tideford Organics are our lovely Totnes Industrial Estate neighbours, popup lunch regulars, outside catering clients & the CEO, Lynette, is my small business mentor… So we were very touched and honoured when they asked us to create some recipes using their new miso range. Last year we made some delicious salads and we will be coming up with more ideas in the weeks to come. But, the other day Alice made a delicious cardamom, chocolate, pear & white miso caramel cake!
Here’s the recipe;
145g self raising flour
1 tsp ground cardamom (or more if you like a stronger flavour)
1 tsp baking powder
x4 pears peeled, cored and quartered
For the caramel
2tbs Tideford Organics white miso
50ml double cream
1tbs golden syrup
Beat the sugar & butter together until thick and creamy. Add the eggs & beat until smooth, the fold in the flour, baking powder and cocoa. On the bottom of a greased tin, lay out the pear pieces. Gently heat the caramel ingredients together, stirring gently until melted and golden. Pour over the pears then pour over the batter. Bake the cake for 35 mins in a medium oven. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes then transfer onto a cooling rack. Serve upturned so you see the gooey caramel and pears! Delicious with ginger ice cream
This is a really versatile and delicious, locally made & organic ingredient. We’ve been using it in our savoury and sweet cooking. Watch this space for more recipes!
