Gluten-Free Pear and Raspberry Cake

Gluten-Free Pear and Raspberry Cake

Simple to make and delicious to eat, this lovely cake is moist and full of flavour owing to the large amount of fruit that it contains. Put simply, this is my kind of cake! Enjoy it with a pot of tea or coffee or as a dessert with a dollop of cream and some fresh raspberries.
