Pear-Almond Tea Cake


I don’t like coffee. I do like the was some of it smells, other than that-I don’t make it, I don’t sever it, I’d like to toss out the coffee maker, I hate the mess of the grins, I hate the stains it leaves. Yuck. So I called this a tea-cake, it is not super sweet or anything. I think it’s best 2 days old, once everything has settled and all, ya’ know?
