Ingredients1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
3 cups mashed ripe pear
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup vegetable oil
4 whole eggs
2 teaspoons cinnamon
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
DirectionsAdapted from Food That Really Schmecks cookbook (a classic) - originally a carrot cake.

Mix dry ingredients together. Blend in oil, add eggs and pear, then vanilla. Blend well and bake in greased 9x13 pan (or two layer pans) for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

For a more chocolate cake, substitute 1/2 cup of the flour for 1/2 cup of cocoa powder; omit cinnamon.
NotesOriginal (carrot) recipe calls for 2 cups sugar and more oil - you can add more sugar if the pears are not ripe. Mine were mushy.

Pear texture is distinct in results. You could put chocolate chips, ginger, or nuts into the cake to mix it up a bit.
