i'm used to making cakes with a hand blender, so to use a spatula to mix (gasp) was a change, but it's nice to go back to basics. the pears puree looks pretty good, my pears were just picked off my pear tree and so they weren't overripe. i substitued 1/2 the oil with apple sauce to cut down on calories and added 1 tsp of cinnimon. when i poured it into the pan it looked a bit liquidy. anyways i baked it and the sides burnt before the middle was cooked. and i had to cook ti for about 1 hour and 5 min to get the middle cooked. the edges and bottom of the cake are pretty charred.
despite this it smelled great and tasted pretty good. i had to cut off the edges...but you can't really taste the pear though. and it's hard to cut. it's a nice sweet cake.
