    Categories: Desserts, Cakes, Lo-fat, Fruits
    Yield: 12 Servings

    1/4 c Butter
    3/4 c Packed light brown sugar
    1 lg Egg
    1 1/2 ts Vanilla
    2 1/4 c Flour
    1 1/2 ts Baking powder
    1/2 ts Baking soda
    1/2 ts Salt
    2 ts Ground cinnamon
    1 ts Ground nutmeg
    2 sm Apples; chopped
    3/4 oz Dried pears
    3/4 c Buttermilk *
    1 tb Confectioners sugar

    * Or you can use 3/4 cup regular milk and 1 T vinegar to
    make sour milk.

    Preheat the oven to 375ºF/190ºC. Spray a 9 1/2" tube pan
    with nonstick spray.

    In a large bowl, cream the butter with the brown sugar.
    Beat in the egg and vanilla.

    In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking
    soda and salt. Stir to blend. Stir in the cinnamon and

    Finely chop the apples, and mince the dried pears.

    Alternately add the flour mixture and the milk to the
    butter-sugar mixture in three additions, beating just
    until the flour is no longer visible. Stir in the apples
    and pears.

    Scrape the batter into the tube pan and bake for 40 min.,
    or until golden brown and tests clean.

    Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes, then unmold the
    cake and cool completely. Dust cake with confectioners
    sugar just before serving.

    Serving size: one 2 1/4 inch wedge.

    Note: If you don't have any dried pears, you can
    substitute raisins are just as good!
