Marguerite D'anjou Pear Cake

This is adapted from the Anjou Pear Cake in the BBC Good Food Cakes app. I've added the lemon zest for more flavor, switched from poire William liqueur to brandy (that's what I had), left out the glaze for a simpler, more clafouti-like cake, switched to all egg white to use up some extras and changed the measurements from weight to volume (for the most part) to make it easier for us Americans. I also decided to name this yummy cake after Marguerite d'Anjou, queen to King Henry VI.
