Mix the water with the honey to loosen the honey then pour into the cake tin. Core and slice the pears, then arrange evenly on top of the honey.

In a mixing bowl, beat the butter, honey and egg together with an electric whisk. Mix all dry ingredients together in a small bowl, then sieve into the creamed mixture a little at a time, adding some of the buttermilk after each addition.
