And it really was delicious.
The pears in this cake came from the garden. Its the first year we have ever had pears from the tree. In fact its been a good year with cooking apples too.
I wanted to present the pears standing upright like a crown - see this chocolate pear crown cake - but the pears did not want to play along. I still think this cake looks pretty stellar.
For the recipe, please follow this Cinnamon Plum Cake and just replace the plums with pears.
