Pear Shaped // Tarte au poire

So, I'm not in France...any more. My 365 days were cut down to 17. It's painful. But, I have been baking through my problems. Thus, je present la tarte au poire. Il est c'est tres bonne! Je mange cette tarte pour mon petit dejeuner. Bon appetit!

I apologize for my mess messy studio!! As you can see, my kitchen makes a smooth transition to my...bed. But, I personally wouldn't have it any other way. I love this tiny studio.

Amber's Recipe Tarte au Poire

2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 cup sugar (if you want to eat this for breakfast, cut it to 2/3rds)
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
pinch of salt
cinnamon - desired amount (optional)
zest of 1 lemon (optional)
juice of 1 lemon (optional)
4 pears, cored, sliced ( I didn't peel mine. Vitamins!)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Place pears in a separate bowl, coat with juice of lemon

  1. Mix/blend eggs and milk together.
  2. After fully mixed, add in salt and sugar
  3. Mixture should be thick.
  4. Add in zest and cinnamon
  5. Add in flour
  6. Add pears to mixture. Coat slices well
  7. Place in 9 inch baking pan, and bake!

The tart is ready when fully browned, and toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center. About an hour.

Enjoy! Let me know how it goes if you make it!!


  1. Yummy! I didn't even notice your apt being messy :)

  2. Wow, I might just have to give that a try! I'm a bit of a disastrous cook though so I think I might get my flatmates to help me...!

    Loving the outfit too, simple but so classy!


  3. p.s. regarding your comment about plum lipstick shades...

    I assume you have Revlon and Maybelline make-up over there? Perhaps they would have a nice plummy shade? Your best bet is proabably to go designer like Dior, because they definitely do plum lipsticks, but they do cost about $30+ for one lipstick! ouch!

  4. this post has made me hungry x

  5. Awesome photos!! Thanks for your comments, too :)

    I used to use a t3 hair iron to straighten it, and that took me probably like, an hour. Then I accidentally left it in cali and so I had to opt for a cheap rite aid one, which took me like, 2 1/2 hours to straighten it, so now I just get a deep conditioning and style at the salon every week :)

  8. Hey Amber! Thank you for the sweet comment!! I'm getting hungry by looking at your delicious tart!! xoxoxoxo

  9. That looks soooo delish! :) Hmmm that works, in a couple of weekends. I'm pretty packed with school right now so it'd be hard for me to head home!

    I'm soo curious though-how'd you network your way to France? And may I please say, you are way too freaking lucky because that's so cool!
