This recipe has been on my to-do list for ages.  I actually bought the can of pears months ago to make it, but only got around to it yesterday.

It's an easy recipe to follow.  It's very rich and you can only eat a small piece at a time.  The book says to serve it warm with cream, but I think I prefer it cold.  I really liked it.

When DH came home from work yesterday he took a look at it and said uhm what's that?  He reluctantly tried it, but declared it not to his taste and that it was way too "gingery".  He also doesn't like pears, so I don't think he was ever going to like it.  I've cut it up and stashed it in the freezer, for a treat for me.

It looks very gingerbready. As DH doesn't like it , all the more for you Katie.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Katie,  before TMX,  I used to make a similar cake.  I served it warm with custard.  Mine was a lot lighter in coulur.  We all loved it.
Please how do I find this recipe as I am too lazy to experiment . .?
