SUNDAY MORNING BLESSINGS

“One of the most spiritual things you can do is embrace your humanity. Connect with those around you today. Say, “I love you”, “I’m sorry”, “I appreciate you”, “I’m proud of you”…whatever you’re feeling. Send random texts, write a cute note, embrace your truth and share it…cause a smile today for someone else…and give plenty of hugs.” ~Steve Maraboli

Here’s wishing you a wonderful new week ahead.

FRESH PEAR CAKE

Pear Cake - TSLC

This Fresh Pear Cake recipe is easy to make and one you will enjoy many times in the future.

4 medium sized fresh pears, peeled, cored and grated or about 2 cups

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

12 tablespoons butter or 3/4 cup, melted

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup buttermilk

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup chopped nuts, walnuts or pecans, Optional

TOPPING

1 cup powdered sugar

4 or 5 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whisk together flour, white sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves in a large mixing bowl until well mixed.  Add melted butter, sour cream, buttermilk, eggs,  vanilla extract and pears stirring with a spoon to mix well.  Fold in nuts.  Pour into a well sprayed 10 inch bundt pan.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 60 to 70 minutes checking to make sure cake is done on the inside.  Cool for 20 to 25 minutes and remove from pan. Let cool.  Combine the topping ingredients mixing well and drizzle over cake.  Enjoy!

Note:  You can frost this cake with cream cheese frosting or even caramel frosting would be good if you don’t want to use the powdered sugar topping.  It would also be good just sprinkled with powdered sugar. I have posted the cream cheese frosting and caramel frosting recipes below for your convenience.
