Spiced Pear Cake

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cup cold water
  • 2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 pear , chopped

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons plant-based milk


  • Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C. Spray a bundt pan with vegetable spray, being sure to cover all indentions.
  • Combine in a large mixing bowl the flours, sugar, salt, baking soda, and spices. Stir to combine.
  • In a smaller bowl, combine the vegetable oil, water, vinegar, and vanilla. Stir to combine.
  • Add the chopped pear pieces to the flour, and stir until the pieces are coated. Then pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture. Stir until combined.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Allow the cake to cool for about 10 minutes before inverting it onto a serving plate. Sprinkle the top with powdered sugar or top with Vanilla Frosting.
  • While you're waiting for the cake to cool, combine the powdered sugar and coconut oil in a bowl. Stir to spread the coconut throughout the sugar. Add the plant-based milk, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach a desired, spreadable consistency. Once the cake has cooled, drizzle this over the top of the cake.
