Pears are such underrated Autumn fruits, but we’re going to change that with this Italian Pear Cake! This delicious cake is going to put pears front and center this season. It has exceptionally tender crumbs thanks to the addition of mascarpone.

If you love pears as I do, let me tell you they are delicious in smoothies and sandwiches too. If you have a couple of overripe pears, throw them into a Pear Smoothie for breakfast. Then pack this Prosciutto and Pear Panini for lunch, it has the perfect savory-sweet taste. And then don’t forget a slice of this Italian Pear Cake for dessert.
