Mrs Malloch’s Ginger Pear Cake

Mrs Malloch’s Ginger Pear Cake
Makes 1 cake

Phoebe’s friend Steph’s mother makes 20 batches of this cake to give away as holiday gifts, which means, though her kitchen is no doubt transformed into a cake factory during this time, the dessert is both easy and affordable. When I watched Steph make it at Sophie’s it seemed simple enough to add on one batch to any holiday dinner. Not to mention, the batter was outrageously delicious. Read the original post here.


3 cups flour
1tsp baking soda
1tsp salt
1tsp nutmeg
1 24oz can pears cut up (no syrup)
1 ½ tbsp fresh grated ginger
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
¾ cup vegetable oil
1cup diced crystallized ginger

Preheat the oven to 350.

Thoroughly spray a bundt pan or loaf pan with Pam for baking (or regular Pam and a dusting of flour). Combine flour, soda, salt and nutmeg in a medium mixing bowl and set aside. Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla with a whisk or electric mixer. Slowly add the oil. Add the fresh ginger and stir to combine. Add flour mixture and pears in alternating batches. Stir in diced crystal ginger. Pour into pan and bake for about an hour. Use the toothpick test (the pear and ginger will be a bit sticky, so dont mistake them for the batter and over bake). Cool, unmold and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Be sure not to forget the LOVE.
