Zelda's Fresh Pear Cake

Zelda Hopkins


I like pears but they seem so hard in the grocery store. I decided that I would use fresh pears in this homemade cake. It is both light and moist, spicey yet pear-y, and altogether remarkable. It keeps well but I warn you that it doesn't last to long.I made this up and I hope you like it.
