So my husband comes home with a bushel of pears, that one of his buddies picked from his pear tree to give to me. Thank you to Eric's pear tree buddy...lol! I couldn't let them go to waste, so I had to come up with a fast and easy recipe. Well, I have to admit that I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out but it ended up being delicious.
My household has now gotten bit by the apple pear bundt cake bug. LOL
Bruised or not so perfect pears work great for this recipe.
Wash and use an apple peeler to take off the pear skins
To get started, you will need (1) one yellow cake mix.
Start peeling those pears and add some lemon juice to the pears in a bowl, so they do not brown to much.
Add 2 apples chopped up. Make sure to core the apples and pears, and leave out the cores and seeds. We don't want any surprises when someone bites into this bundt cake.
Add 4 to 5 small pears to a food processor, (if you have medium sized pears, use only 2 in a food processor)
Make sure it comes out to applesauce consistency
Chop up the remaining pears (about 3 small pears)
1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour and 2 tbsp of melted butter - mix together
Take out ove oven and cool before debundting.
Additional Topping (if you'd like to make the cake more beautiful):
Double boiler = melt semi sweet chocolate to drizzle on top of bundt cake. 1 cup of chocolate chips will be perfect for drizzling :)
Repeat the brown sugar, flour and melted butter mixture to add to the top of cake about 5 minutes prior to bundt cake coming out of oven. If you want that more golden look, turn your broiler on within your oven and just give it a few minutes to brown up the topping before you drizzle the chocolate on top.
