Loved this! It's not only delicious, but beautiful. I thought the cake would dense but it had the consistency of sponge cake, nice and light. I loved the fresh zing of the ginger pear combo and it wasn't overly sweet.I baked it in a black cake pan lined with parchment paper and took it out at 30 mins. Perfect! Thanks for posting the keeper.
A most delicious easy-to-throw together little cake (even without the lovely garnishes)! Such a perfect size for a small household too! I sifted the dry ingredients before mixing with the wet but otherwise stayed on-track with the recipe. It was so hard to wait the 20 minutes before plating as it smelled so wonderful! DH & I each enjoyed a generous wedge with our afternoon coffee - and it was delicious! Thank you "Kathy" for a lovely little sleeper keeper - we will use it over & over!
This is SO good! Loved the pears, lemon and ginger on the top and the sugar-dusted pan made such an awesome texture! Really fabulous recipe! (I have to say I was nervous about the 1/4 tsp. of dry mustard, but I made it as the recipe said and it was amazing!) Thanks for posting this recipe. We'll be making it over and over!
Great cake, great taste! The taste combo of gingerbread & pears suited my taste buds to a T! Will definitely be making this one again & again! Thanks for the recipe! [Made & reviewed as a tagged bonus in Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #14, Mar 08]
This is a terrific cake. I made it on thanksgiving everyone loved it,i think I made it atleast 10 times since.
I made this cake 3 times in one week! I initially made this for a nice couple that lives behind us as a thank you. My MIL was in and she and my husband smelled it baking...hence, the second cake. Both of these I made with fresh pears and they were delicious. Later in the week I made this cake for the ladies that take my water aerobics class and I forgot to got get pears but had a can of pears in the pantry. I drained the pears well and proceeded as directed. Beautiful results as well. I had to email copies of the recipe to all of them. It is not too sweet so can be enjoyed for dessert, snack and even breakfast!
