We are moving. In less then a month we will be somewhere, we are just not sure where yet. So that means it’s time to empty the freezers. We still have tons of pears and other frozen fruit and vegetables so they need to be used up quick.

I found a new recipe for pear cake which is AMAZING. It is my ultimate favorite pear cake recipe. I modified it as usual of course. The best part about this cake is that it is so much more light and fluffy compared to many other pear cake recipes I have tried.

I found the original recipe at Here is my version.

Almond Coconut Pear Cake

Blender Mixture
About 4 cups of diced pears
1 cup brown sugar (not packed)
½ olive oil
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tsp rum extract
3 large eggs

Bowl Mixture
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
¾ cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
½ cup sliced almonds

Greese a 9X13 pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine blender mixture and blend until smooth. Set aside. Combine the bowl mixture and stir until evenly blended. Pour the blender mixture into the bowl and mix until smooth. Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan. Bake in your preheated oven for about 55 minutes (or when a took pick comes out clean).


This is a must try recipe for anyone who likes pear desserts.
