I found this recipe while trying to find ways to use up some buttermilk. What stood out was the use of the pureed pears. I had to know how this would turn out and I'm so pleased to find a new way to enjoy a dessert that is usally too decadent a choice for one trying to "eat well". I sent half of the cake to work with my husband and now his whole office wants the recipe. This one's definetely a winner.
