    Baby Kato's Note:

    This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT8 – Australia/New Zealand. This recipe was found at Wattie’s - Food in a Minute website. This cake sounds wonderful, another recipe that I will be trying, but I will be using maple syrup instead of the flavored syrup, I think it will taste much better.

      Delicious snack cake -- I made this in a 13 x 9 pan and cooked for 45 minutes at 350. I used 2 pears (but my pears were pretty big). Wonderful cake which we enjoyed very much. Thanks for sharing!

      I am always excited to try new maple recipes because I am a lover of real maple syrup. How coincidental that I came across this recipe, as it just happens to be peak maple-tapping season in the Northeastern USA. This cake is light and fluffy with delicate ginger flavor, moist fruit and topped with a subtle maple glaze. I actually substituted apples for the pears, since my hubby unwittingly served the pears I was saving to our youngsters for breakfast today. :) Being a maple-lover, I would have liked this cake to have a stronger maple flavor. The glaze has a nice maple flavor and makes the cake glisten like a precious gem, but I'd like a little stronger maple flavor in the cake itself. I also found myself wanting a little more moisture with the cake, so I should have heeded your advice and served it with ice cream. The next time I bake this cake (using pears!), I'll serve it with maple-walnut ice cream or maple whipped cream. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Baby Kato! It was scrumptious!
