Fresh Pear Tart
From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at www.dorothymcnett.com.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk the eggs well, beat in the milk, sugar and pinch of salt. Add the flour and blend thoroughly to make a compact cake batter. Peel the pears and cut them into 1 inch slices. Add them to the batter and stir well. Smear the bottom of a 9 inch round cake pan with butter, sprinkle with the bread crumbs and then turn the pan over to release any unstuck crumbs. Put in the batter, leveling it off. Make numerous small hollows on top with a fingertip and fill them with little bits of butter. Stud with the whole cloves and bake 45-50 minutes. Serve warm.
