    Preheat oven to 375° F (190° C). Toss pears with lemon juice; drain, reserving juice. Grease 9 inch (23 cm) springform pan with 1 Tbsp (15 mL) Becel® Original margarine, then sprinkle with 2 Tbsp (30 mL) sugar and almonds. Arrange pears in circle in bottom of springform pan; set aside. Beat 1/2 cup (125 mL) Becel® Original margarine with 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar in large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, lemon peel and reserved juice; set aside. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in another bowl. Stir 1/2 of the flour mixture into the batter, mixing well. Stir in milk, then remaining flour mixture. Fold in candied ginger. Spoon batter evenly over pears. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove to wire rack and let stand 5 minutes. Invert serving plate over pan and turn out cake. Serve at room temperature and, if desired, with caramel sauce.
