A recipe by request. Haven't tried it yet but it sounds like a really moist recipe.

Beautiful - just as moist and sweet as promised (even after I forgot the applesauce!)
I did mine in a loaf tin as I didn't have a bundt pan (and didn't even know what one was until today, I'll admit!)
Served with thickened cream and #327564 "Pear-Date Compote".
- 1 1⁄2 cups pears, pureed (4 to 5 pears)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup applesauce
- 5 eggs
- 3 1⁄2 cups flour
- 5 teaspoons baking powder
