Pear Pinwheel and Hazelnut Cake - THB

The Home Bakers organized by Joyce of Kitchen Flavours  is a group who are baking from the book,  "Coffee Cakes" by Lou Seibert Pappas .  We plan to complete the book, recipe by recipe.  This is our 4th bake, my 3rd.

 So far, I have liked all three cakes and so has hubby.  That speaks well for the book and for Lour Seibert Pappas.

For the 4th THB bake,Pear Pinwheel and Hazelnut Cake, was chosen by Zoe, Bake For Happy Kids.  
You will find the recipe on her blog.  She has made any changes, she personally made, are highlighted so you have the original recipe and her recipe. 

I was surprised at how flat the came was but I see that everyone had the same look for their cakes.  We both loved the cake which means, no one else got a piece.  No, we are not selfish.  I made a chocolate cake to share.  Actually, this one was made gluten-free and the chocolate was made for everyone.

Just a cute note.  I mistyped chocolate and it came out spelled chocolale before correction.  It made me think of a boy in my class who wrote a paper on chocolate and spelled chocolate incorrectly, each time, he used it.  (Of course, Spell Check is going to give me a hard time with this.)

  11. Hi Chaya,

    Your cake looks lovely! I wasn't surprised at all that the cake is flat because there is no raising agent in it. I was a little worried at first before baking the cake and glad that it is a good cake :D
