This grain- and nut-free gingerbread cake is perfect for a holiday gathering! Firm, ripe pears work best for this recipe. If the pears are overripe, they end up releasing too much liquid into the cake. 



1 tablespoons softened butter (or coconut oil)
1 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoons arrowroot powder (or tapioca flour)
2 pears cored and thinly sliced

Dry Ingredients

6 tablespoons coconut flour
6 tablespoons arrowroot powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoons ground ginger
¼ teaspoons ground cloves

Wet Ingredients

4 large eggs
4 tablespoons melted butter (or coconut oil)
4 tablespoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
