“Cake is happiness. If you know the way of the cake, you know the way of happiness! – C. Joybell C.
There’s no arguing when it comes to such wise words. Cake has something magical about it; from the therapeutic stages of baking to the gleeful moment of consuming a slice that’s the size of your face.
The Health Emporium family is very proud of its cake-loving skills. From our staff to our customers, we love cake in all shapes and forms; be it raw, baked or frozen. We’re genuine fans.
We’re a week into Winter, and are already stuffing the oven with tins of beautiful, warm baked goods.
Organic pears are in-season and so beautiful at this time of the year.
Pears are a nutrient dense food, containing significant amounts of potassium, Vitamin C and fiber. They are good for the skin, the intestines and the heart, and according to traditional Chinese medicine, they are extremely beneficial for the lungs. And what better way to squeeze the nutrients from them, then to add them to cake?
This recipe is based on an amazing pear cake from the Macrina Bakery in Seattle. The taste buds are teased with deep hints of cinnamon, gingerbread-like texture and a sweet, fruity zest.
