I had a lady’s luncheon and for dessert I poached some pears from my pear trees in a simple syrup with a vanilla bean, star anise, and a few other spices. I then stood them up on their sides in the gingerbread batter and after they were baked I sliced them into individual servings. Each slice of gingerbread had a slice of poached pear in it, garnished with a blackberry sauce and homemade whip cream. It looked so special and was moist and flavorful!

Refreshing, easy and pretty, the perfect storm!
I use the Duncan Hines lemon cake mix and follow the pound cake recipe on the side of the box. Bake and when cool, spread 1/2 cup of raspberry jam between the layers. I like the jam with the seeds.
Fruit Kuchen - apple, Italian plum, peach, or plum
I never knew there were so many ways to make a kuchen. I grew up eating it the way the recipe is made below, with the almond flavoring making all the difference! Plus I love that there is very little cake and mostly fruit. This has been passed down from my great-grandmother, Omi.
