Pear and Ginger Slice

Font Size:

This recipe for Pear and Ginger Slice was given to Debbie by her friend Carol and she was dubious as to just how it would turn out. Sometimes the simplest things are the best, and tastiest.


1 pack store’s own vanilla cake mix
200g butter, melted
400g tin of pears, drained and thinly sliced
200ml custard, shop-bought is fine
5 or 6 ginger biscuits


Preheat the oven to 180C. Line and grease a slice tin.

Mix together the cake mix and butter and spread evenly in the slice tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes.

Mix together the pears and the tinned custard and spread on the cake base. Crush the ginger biscuits and sprinkle over the top of the slice.

Bake for a further 15 minutes and remove from the oven. Leave to cool for five minutes then place in the refrigerator. Once completely cool slice and serve.

    An absolute delight, the ginger tops off an otherwise sweet dish, with no added sugar involved.

    Only the sugar in the cake mix and ginger nuts as well as the sugar in the pears. But an interesting recipe which I might try soon.
