Pear Cake with Browned Butter Glaze

Tiny Pear Loaves

I adore pear cake. Okay, I adore all most cake. I especially adore cakes that impersonate healthy foods. This is one of those. It has PEARS! Everyone knows pears are super healthy, full of fiber and of course, delicious. This is a delicious moist wonderful cake/bread. I found the recipe here.  I added  a cup or so of toasted pecans to the cake batter. I also added a half of a vanilla bean’s caviar to the glaze. Lori Lange (the recipe girl herself) implores us in the recipe not to skip making and using the glaze. I completely agree. While the cake is amazing alone- the glaze adds a certain deliciousness that you should not live your life without.  I will suggest that you make the glaze thinner than you think you need it to be, DON’T use your whisk to try to drizzle (fail), and absolutely lick the bowl. To make this recipe healthier you could slice and eat an extra whole pear while you are making prepping. That’s what I did… because I’m all into healthy recipes.  ;-)  Happy Thanksgiving y’all!
