I was given some pears and didn't know what to do with them so went on a search for recipes. I found a recipe titled "Dark Gingerbread Pear Cake" on a blog www.sassyradish.com . Of course I had to make some substitutions and alterations to make it my own but the basic recipe is still the same. It made the house smell heavenly!
