Vegan Vanilla-Pear Cake

With the first snow laying on the ground I realized that I’m not quite ready to let go of autumn. I just love the rustling of the leaves, the crisp air and sunbeams peeking trough the trees – but of course also the cozy evenings inside with a hot tea, snuggled up to my love. So I made a cake, that captures all these feelings. Juicy, sweet pear mixed with the hearty flavor of vanilla. If you’re in for a little more autumn – go give it a try!

Blend everything together and slowly add the mylk. Mix in the pears with a spoon in the end. Put the dough into the baking tin and bake it for 40-50 minutes. Meanwhile prepare the icing by mixing the butter, icing sugar and bourbon vanilla. Add some mylk if you prefer a more fluid texture. Then take cake out of the oven and let it cool down. Then cover it with the icing – voilà!
