I.love.to.bake.

I.love.to.eat.cake

So there you go! And oh!! I LOVE FALL and everything about Fall. I wish I lived in a city where it felt like 12 months of fall. What is there to not love about fall really!! The falling leaves, that nip in the air, fresh apples, pears, the smell of pumpkin spice…,sweaters, the crushing of grapes to make wine…I can go on and on. So, I’m naturally happy these few months. 🙂

When I coaxed my husband to plant a Pear tree in or yard, I never really thought of making a Pear cake someday. Pear chutney, yes! But not really a cake. Because, I i thought I would eat all the fresh pears off the tree since I love these pears so much.

You can easily find these green Anjou pears in supermarkets. They are crunchy and super sweet.

You want a perfect fall cake recipe that you want to snack on thought out the day then, lets talk about this Caramel Pear Cake because it is the perfect cake for Fall.

How to make this Pear Cake

I’m lucky to have a pear tree in my yard that yields quite enough pears to eat fresh off the tree and also enough to bake some awesome Pear cakes as well. You can also find pears flooding the supermarkets around this time of the year.

Just in case, you don’t have pears handy but you have some crisp apples around, then make this cake with apples. Just make sure to use some crisp, juicy apples like granny smith or honey crisp.

In this Pear Cake recipe, I chopped the pear into bite size pieces but if your pears aren’t firm enough then feel free to grate them, if you like. But chopping them would get more of that flavor/texture.

Tips for this Pear Cake with Caramel Sauce or Dolce de Leche

  • To make cupcakes, all you need to do is reduce the baking time — start checking at 15mins or so.
  • You can replace apples with pears for this cake recipe.
  • Be sure to check out my How to Make Caramel post for homemade caramel recipe.
  • And let’s not forget the homemade caramel. It’s easier than you think and is so much better than store bought caramel.
  • Addition of cinnamon and nutmegs make this Caramel Pear Cake delectable and undeniably fall.
  • The caramel will keep for a good month or so in the fridge, so you can make this in advance.
  • If caramel has thickened too much, microwave in 5-10 second intervals until it’s pourable (but not warm).
  • Check out Pumpkin Spice Cake as another fall favorite.
  • If you don’t have buttermilk, then mix 1 spoon of vinegar or lemon juice in 1/2 cup milk and let it sit for 5 minutes.

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.
