I hesitated putting this post together this week. If you’re anything like me – you’re sick of emails and round ups. Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, my inbox has been out of control. So I’ll completely understand if skip this week’s post, no hard feelings 🙂
When it comes to holiday baking, it’s always hard to choose a favourite. But if there was a flavour profile I absolutely adore at this time of year and find myself gravitating towards time and time again, it would have to be all things spiced. If you’ve been here for the last few years, you would have seen my Molasses Spiced Cake. Still a favourite and one that I will definitely be baking again this year.
But I thought I would kick off the holiday baking season with something a little less quintessentially holiday – a Spiced Pear Cake, with Butterscotch Sauce.
We’re days away from American Thanksgiving and while it would be so much easier to have our Thanksgivings on the same day, I like that we’re given the opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge all that we have to be grateful for – twice.
