(Yes I spelled raisins wrong – I didn’t proof read so that’ll teach me huh! But it takes too long to re-upload a video so everyone just advert your eyes!)
Hey guys, here’s a super simple recipe for Samhain! I personally believe that sharing food on a sabbat is a wonderful ritual to follow and especially one like Samhain for its rooted in harvest celebrations! I hope you al have a lovely Samhain and enjoy the recipe!
3 firm, ripe pears, peeled, cored, and diced
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs at room temperature
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup raisins (I use golden raisins)
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Place the pears in a large bowl with the sugar; stir, then set aside for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a shallow 9in by 13in baking dish
In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Then sift the flour mixture into the bowl containing the pears. Add the eggs, oil, vanilla, raisins, and nuts and mix well. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared dish.
Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 40-45 or 50-55 minutes depending on your oven. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan on a rack. Cut into 12 rectangles to serve.
