Canned pears are the key to this delicious AIP-friendly cake and the special salted caramel sauce is just the gooey yum on top you are craving!




  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9 inch round cake pan with a small amount of avocado oil and lightly dust with cassava flour. Shake pan to distribute flour evenly and then discard any that hasn’t stuck to the pan.
  2. Drain the canned pears and reserve the canning liquid in a large measuring cup. Add enough water to total 2 cups volume and set aside for use in the batter.
  3. Place the drained pears in the cake pan and distribute in an even layer.
  4. By hand or in a stand mixer, combine cassava flour, tapioca starch, coconut flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and mace
  5. Add the 2 cups canning liquid and water from step 2, avocado oil, and maple syrup. Beat until batter is completely smooth and no lumps remain.
  6. Pour batter evenly over pears in cake pan.
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until cake is firm and top is golden brown.
  8. Allow to cool completely, then run a knife around the edge to release cake from pan and carefully flip cake over onto serving plate.
  9. Top with Sweet Apricity Sea Salted Caramel Sauceas desired.


When buying canned pears, look varieties that have been canned in juice rather than in a sugar syrup. Be wary of “no sugar added” labels however, because these frequently have artificial sweeteners.
