Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a 24cm loose-bottomed tart tin with non-stick baking paper. Slice 2 to 3 firm pears, sliced thinly.
Put 1/4 cup almond meal, 3/4 cup wholemeal flour and 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder in a bowl and mix. Add 80ml pure maple syrup along with 180ml buttermilk, 3 teaspoons of fine lemon rind, 1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 40g salted butter, 1 egg and stir to mix.
Pour the mix into the lined baking tray and smooth so the top is even. Place the thinly sliced pears on the top of the mixture and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of raw brown sugar.
Cook for approximately 40 minutes or until the pear tart is cooked - make sure you test it with a skewer. Serve while warm with a good quality ice cream and Salted Caramel Coconut sauce by Sticky Balsamic drizzled on top. Enjoy! Second (and third!) helpings are strongly encouraged.
