Locally Sourced Cake: FL style

Over the holidays, there was much baking in my house, and one of the dishes to emerge was a pear cake.

It was made with both local and regional ingredients.

Of the Florida ingredients, there were eggs from Farriss Farm based in Palm Beach Gardens, and bought at Tequesta Green Market. There was wildflower honey from Ivan Rus based in Indiantown, and bought at the Wellington Green Market.

And finally, there was Florida sugar based in Belle Glade, and bought at Publix.

The regional ingredients apart from the flour, leavening agents, and milk, were pears. They were Royal Riviera® Pears from Harry and David, grown in southern Oregon.

It was a delicious way to celebrate the season.
