I guess a nice Bacardi Rum Cake would not be allowed......
This is nice bundt, no alcohol, pureed pears make it very good.


Gingered Fresh Pear Cake

1 1/2 cups pureed pears -- (4 to 5 ripe pears)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1/2 cup butter -- softened
1 cup milk
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup applesauce -- all-natural
5 eggs
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tb + 2 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter a bundt pan and dust well with flour. Puree pears in a food processor. In a small bowl mix the pureed pears, vanilla, lemon juice, cinnamon, and ground ginger. Set aside. Heat the milk and butter in a small saucepan until butter is melted. Sift flour and baking powder.

With an electric mixer on medium-high, beat the eggs and brown sugar for 5 minutes, until pale and thick. Add milk and melted butter mixture while beating on low, then add the pear mixture and applesauce. Add the flour and baking powder, beating until just combined.

Pour the batter into the bundt pan and bake for about 55 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Serve with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream or warm fruit compote.

Hi all! The cakes I took were a big hit. They were the first 3 that got choosen.(They did not number the cakes, if your number was called then you got to choose your own). I came home with an upside down german chocolate cake. I was so tired & full last night that I didn't even try it. But, it looks really good. Thank you all for your help & suggestions! I really appriciate it.
