Fresh Pear Cake

This Fresh Pear Cake is a delicious sweet layer cake which is sandwiched together using creamy vanilla buttercream. The cake itself is simple to make. Use pear puree to keep the cake layers moist and to give a hint of pear flavor. 

As the cake cools, make the buttercream frosting. Start by heating flour and milk together until it resembles thick pancake batter. Set aside to cool. Once the mixture is at room temperature, cream the butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt together in a food processor until light and fluffy. Add the cooled milk mixture and beat it until it resembles whipped cream. The mixture might look curdled at the beginning, but keep going and it should come together. If you can still see streaks of butter in the mixture, keep beating it until it disappears. Assemble the cake by sandwiching layers together with buttercream. 

To make Fresh Pear Cake, you will need the following ingredients:
