Easy fresh pear cake is so good.

This easy fresh pear cake can be put together in little time and is wonderful with coffee or as a dessert anytime.  Make this cake if you need something in a hurry of if you just have pears on hand you need to use.  You don’t even need a mixer with this cake.  It is just that easy!  You could double the recipe for a larger cake.  This one keeps well for several days.  I don’t refrigerate this cake but do try to keep it in a cool place.  You might also like our recipe for fresh pear pecan bread that is so good.

2 cups chopped or diced and peeled fresh pears

3/4 cup white granulated sugar

2 eggs

1/3 cup cooking oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

In a bowl combine sugar with diced pears and mix together with a spoon.  Add the eggs, cooking oil, vanilla and melted butter.  Mix all with a spoon.  In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, ground ginger, cinnamon and cloves.  Combine the flour mixture with the pear mixture and stir all ingredients together with a spoon until all ingredients are wet.  Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with cooking oil.  Pour in cake batter and sprinkle nuts on top.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until center tests done.  We don’t think this cake needs frosting but we do sprinkle on some powdered sugar before serving.  Makes 1 cake.  Enjoy!
