Why This Recipe Works
This Western-Slope Pear Cake with Ginger Cream recipe takes just minutes to prepare, but looks elegant and packs solid flavor. We used canned pear halves for pears that are guaranteed to be ripe and, as an added bonus, are already peeled. Also, the canned pears didn’t leach liquid into the cake the way fresh pears would. Combining ground and fresh ginger gave us a deep, rounded ginger flavor. And for even more punch, we added ground ginger to sweetened whipped cream to serve alongside the cake.
