Shocking to think Parsnips in a cake ?! This cake is delicious and so moist. This is a cake you eat and remember the first time you tried it. This originated from an experience my husband had in Australia.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a separate bowl beat together the top 8 ingredients. Then cut and add in the grated parsnips, cut pear, and raisins. Put into a 22 cm loose bottomed round cake tin, lined bottom and sides above the tin sides, or a well greased bundt pan.
Cook until done (tooth pick comes out clean) approximately 1 hour.
optional add in: 1/2 cup walnuts Optional: cream cheese icing.
