Pear, fig and nut loaf with black leaf and ginger tea

Pear, fig and nut loaf Odgers and McClelland Exchange Stores

A drizzly day always inspires me to turn the oven on and bake, helping to warm the house, fill it with comforting smells, and have a warm, delicious cake to share with my family. It is the last week of school in NSW, so it has the additional bonus of providing a nutrient dense lunchbox filler for our boys' recess. With a folder full of recipes I have collected over nearly three decades, it's also a welcome opportunity to try a new recipe that I have been wanting to make for a long time. Cakes with fruit, nuts, and spices always appeal to me, so a Pear, date and hazelnut recipe from The Sydney Morning Herald (June 19, 2007) beckoned to be made. Determined not to leave our eight acres on this particular day, I substituted ingredients, making it a Pear, fig and nut loaf. With the boys at school, come time for a cup of tea I toasted a slice of loaf and spread it with butter for a warming afternoon tea. With Duncan cutting a couple of slices as well, when our son arrived home from school he asked, "Where has all the cake gone?" We'll just have to make this recipe again.
