Pear Cake

This cake started as an Apple Cake but since I had pears and not apples in the house, it became a Pear Cake.  My sister had been talking about making a pear cake as she had picked up pears at 9 cents a pound in Ontario!  Yes, nine cents! 

Pear Cake 

  • 1 c white flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 3 Tablespoons Maple Flavoured Rye
  • 2 -3 pears diced
Prepare 8 to 9 inch springform pan
Preheat oven to 350 
Mix dry ingredients
In mixing bowl; mix butter, I used shortening add sugar and beat until light and fluffy
Add egg one at at time and beat until light

Add in vanilla and flavoured rye

Mix in chopped pears

Spread batter evenly into prepared pan

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

The kitchen smells divine, telling me that the Maple flavoured Rye and pears go well together!
