My favorite part of a holiday meal is lingering at the table while enjoying a dessert or two. The rush and excitement of getting everything ready is over. The turkey dinner has been devoured  and then it’s time to relax over a slice of cake or pie.

I love a pretty dessert buffet with pie and cake options. Pear bundt cake is an easy dessert to transport and keeps well for several days.

The secret to this pear bundt cake recipe is in the very first step. Mixing the chopped pears with sugar and pecans in order to release the juices of the pears makes this a deliciously moist cake. Of course it has just a little kick with the bourbon glaze, sealing in all that delicious flavor.

    Michelle, what a wonderful recipe! This sounds like fall, doesn’t it? I think this would be a great cake to take along anytime as a guest throughout the holiday season! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

      • Amber Ferguson says:

        Michelle everything you do is so elegant classy, and beautiful! That cake looks absolutely divine! I will pin this recipe for the future to experiment with gluten free flour.

        I agree that dessert time is the best because things have calmed down and you can just relax a bit.

        Thank you so much for joining the hop. Happy Thanksgiving!
