The ingredients are: 2 cups of flour; 1 teaspoon baking powder;1 teaspoon baking soda; half a teaspoon each of cloves and cinnamon; 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Mix them all up. Then in another bowl stir together half a cup of oil, ( I used olive oil but you can use any oil you like), 100 grams of powdered brown sugar - YES! It's finally available here in Sicily! Then add two eggs, a bit of raisins, pecans or walnuts, and half a chopped pear.
Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ones. Line a small loaf pan with baking paper, and fill the pan with the cake mixture. Add slices of pear on top. Bake in a preheated oven 180° C for about 1 hour.
