Diane- did you put any filling or frosting with your cake?

I have 5 little taste testers and one big one at home and they all agree that the pearsauce tastes the best so that is what I will make my cake with...

I have recently come across 2 different pear cake recipes. One is in a 9 x 13 pan and the other in 8" rounds. Don't know if the 9x13 could be done as cakes for decorating but it is really awesome. I have taken it to 2 different ladies events and everyone said it was the best cake they had ever eaten. I am a huge fan of chocolate, but this pear cake is almost as good.
Thanks for these new recipes which I will certainly try.

katie, i was waffling between brown sugar smbc and vanilla and i went with vanilla for both filling and frosting. i am glad i did because the pear taste is delicate and i think the vanilla was just right for it without overpowering it. omgosh, it was even better on day 2. i don't even think you have to be a pear lover to enjoy it icon_smile.gif

lilybird, would you feel comfortable sharing your favorite pear recipes?

hi katie,

i got mine from amoretti. it is kind of expensive...about $35.00 for their smallest size. it smells so wonderful, yum! they also have a pear compound. i have a sample size and i think i am going to break down and buy the $35.00.

i am also going to buy some from bickfordflavors.com to play with as it is pretty affordable (and they have lots of other great and unusual extract flavors).

most of the pear cakes out there that i found rely heavily on cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. for flavor, but i really just wanted a cake with the clear taste of pear and no distractions!

sometime this week, i will probably make another attempt using monin pear syrup. that HAS to be loaded with pear flavor i would guess icon_smile.gif

for a good pear flavor i would hit up a farmers market for some homemade pear preserves. that way you don't have the preservative flavor or the jarred extract flavor. i've used homemade apple butter in spice cupcakes and they were gone within the day. lol. the homegrown/homemade goods are the greatest! thumbs_up.gif

Funny... I have a note to return a call to amoretti!!! I guess I will have to let them know I want to try the pear extract!

I will let you know!
