KAW Pear Upside down ginger cake & Pork agrodolce

Had some friends for dinner last night and made this delicious, easy and reasonably healthy dessert.

Used the recipe below but used some pears we froze last summer off the neighbor's pear tree. They were small but yummy.

Had a few slices left and all the pear flavored light syrup I froze them in, so I cooked that down and put them on top after I took it out but of course I forgot to take the photo after I added them.

Sorry no pictures of the pork but this sauce was incredibly good. Photo of the simmering pears will have to do :-)

That cake looks amazing! I will have to try it, being a sucker for any upside down cake. The pork sounds delicious but looks a tad monochromatic :)

Your granite looks rather wonderful too, I have to add. What a lovely backdrop.

Hadn't really thought about the monochromacity :-)

The pork was actually a nice healthy pink and we had a some bright green beans (haricot vert) with pine nuts and citrus along with some spanakopita, so the plate was nice and colorful but yes, that sauce and all its contents were a rather uniform purplish black.

I used fresh ginger in the cake instead of the ground called for in the recipe and it was really good.

Glad you like the granite, Golden Cascade for anyone wondering.

Happy Veteran's Day to all!

Sounds yummy! I've been making a variation of that pear ginger cake for years. Love it!
