Named after the queen of England and wife of King Henry VI, Marguerite d’Anjou pear cake is one of the most famous vintage French desserts. This ambrosial pear cake is loaded with fresh fragrant pears and bright citrus flavours; Marguerite d’Anjou leaves a very delicate taste as it melts in the mouth and releases a retro elegant aroma — sweet fruit and zesty citrus. This is not only a simple and elegant recipe but also a tried and tested one; my Marguerite d’Anjou pear cake recipe is vegan and vintage-inspired.
