I am so obsessed with my new toy, air fryer so I tried to make everything in it ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜† Today I made this wonderful dessert and it's so simple and delicious. Recipe is below if you wanna have it a go ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

This recipe make 12-16 portions (Depends on how big pieces you cut) Half it if you make a small tray.

For frangipane

200g of Soften Butter

200g of Brown sugar

100g of Ground almond

150g of Self Raising flour

1 Tsp of Baking powder

1 Tsp of Almond extract

4 Eggs

2 Tbsp of Milk

For the toffee sauce

150g of Butter

150g of Dark brown sugar

2 Tsp of Vanilla extract

300ml of Double cream

For the vanilla crumbs

100g of Melted butter

150g of Plain flour

50g of Sugar

1 Tsp of Vanilla extract

For the condensed milk ice cream (no churn recipe)

1000ml of UHT Double cream

1 Can of Condensed milk

2 Tsp of Vanilla extract


1) Make condensed milk ice cream. Pour the double cream and condensed milk in a mixing bowl, then lightly whip it. Just to thicken up. Pour them in a container then freeze it until set.

2) Make toffee sauce. In a small sauce pan put everything in and heat up. Stir all the time to make sure it wonโ€™t burn at the bottom. Keep some for plating later one. The rest put it in the baking tray for the cake.

3) Peel 3-4 pear and slice them into thin slice (aprox. 1 cm thickness)

4) Make frangipane. In a mixing bowl, put all the ingredients in and then mix well. You can use a hand mixer as well but donโ€™t over mix it.

5) In a large baking tray, brush some butter to make sure the cake wonโ€™t stick. Then pour the toffee sauce in, lay the bottom of the tray with sliced pear. Cover the pear with frangipane batter.

6) Bake them in a preheat oven at 180c for 25- 30 minutes (Test it with a skewer) once done let it to cool

7) Make vanilla crumbs, in mixing bowl. Mix everything in and then put it into a large baking tray with baking paper. Spread the crumbs evenly then bake at 190c for 15-20 minutes.

8) Assemble. Once the cake is cool then slice them into rectangle pieces. Put on a plate, spoon some vanilla crumbs on the side then top with a scoop of condensed milk ice cream. Drizzle the cake and the ice cream with toffee sauce.
