Pre-heat the oven to 180º Celsius (165º Celsius fan forced). Spray the bundt pan with vegetable oil, if you don't have an oil spray, just pour a little oil into the pan and spread the oil all round with a bit of cling-wrap wrapped around your fingers.
In a saucepan, melt the butter until it starts to foam. Be careful as you want to take it just to the edge, but not over.
Remove from the pan and let cool (until it starts to slightly harden up again)
In a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until combined.
Slowly add in the eggs (one at a time) until fully incorporated.
Add in half of the flour and salt, vanilla bean paste and almond milk.
Once the mixture is fully incorporated, add the remaining dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Remove the bowl from the stand mixer.
Finally drop in the cubed pears and mix with a wooden spoon or a spatula.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until a wooden skewer comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
Serve with a sprinkle of icing sugar.
