70g flour

50g sugar

20g butter, melted

Beat the eggs with the sugar until pale and foamy. Add the melted butter, the milk and vanilla extract. Mix well. Gradually whisk in the flour. 

Divide the batter between 2 medium mixing bowls. Peel the apples and cut finely, using a mandoline, then add to one bowl and cover with the batter. Repeat the process with the pears.
