Spiced Pear Cake

Spiced Pear CakeGrowing up in The States, cakes seemed to fit into two categories: really sweet and super sweet.  Maybe this is why I’m so interested in cakes which although sweet still allow your blood sugar to maintain a similar level despite eating one, or maybe two slices of cake.

This Spiced Pear Cake is lovely!  It is amazingly moist and possesses a beautiful, gentle flavour as a result of the combination of spices, honey and its name sake the pears.
