Here we are at the end of winter and spring begins. And for many of you Fall, I love Autumn is my favorite time.
I can not stand the heat and the summers are very hot here. The good thing is the fruit and being able to swim, everything has something good.
Getting to the point about a week ago I made this recipe, we have had many pears and are delicious so this recipe is good when you have ripe pears or not.
I love bundt cakes always look good and they are eaten very fast here.
I love it with a cup of tea or coffee.
It is adapted from one of my favorite cooking magazines:
