Hints and Tips

You can replace raspberries with blueberries or mixed berries.

Pre heat the oven to 180C (350F) degrees.

Grease and line with baking paper (parchment) a 22 cm (7 “) baking tin.

In a MixMaster or food processor, whisk together the eggs and sugar for 3 minutes or until they are pale and a creamy consistency.

Add the olive oil and yoghurt and process again so everything is well combined.

Add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix again until you have a smooth batter.

Remove the batter from the MixMaster/food processor and pour into a bowl and gently fold through the raspberries.

Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tin.  Place pear slices on top.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until skew comes out clean.

Place cake on a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
