I know this pear cake looks like a gooey mess, and that is exactly what it is! But it is a delicious gooey mess that also happens to be gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and nut-free… and those can be hard to come by! It is based on a recipe I created last summer, but takes advantage of the pears that I preserved this fall after our backyard tree had an impressive year. The result is something that feels like a holiday treat, but you could enjoy any time.
The cake itself is pretty dang good, but an addition of naturally sweet, AIP-compliant Sea Salted Caramel Sauce from Sweet Apricity takes it right over the top into decadence! I’m a huge fan of this small company who makes marshmallows, caramels, and other goodies that are made from natural sugars so that they are compliant with the autoimmune protocol (AIP).
**NOTE: This is not a sponsored post, meaning the company has not paid me to write this recipe or talk about their product. However, they did send me a free sample of this and some of their other products and if you choose to purchase through one of the links on this page or elsewhere on my blog, I do get a small referral commission. No matter what, you can always trust that I only mention products I really love, use myself, and recommend to my personal nutrition/coaching clients.**
