Don’t worry, if you are not a big fan of pumpkin, its flavor is very subtle. Trust me. I have to say, I was a bit surprised when I started looking for recipes. Pumpkin and caramel is common as is pumpkin and chococlate. But pumpkin and pear is rare. At least in the baking department. But I just love that combination. Pumpkin and pear, I feel it is perfect. Maybe this cake is perfect for your Thanksgiving party? Or to start holiday baking season? It definitely is a show-off!
