Oh MY GOD. I stopped by Aunt Mary's cafe on the way home and picked up a piece of Ginger Pear Cake. It's dark ginger cake, with thinly sliced pears on top. If you like ginger, this cake will make you so happy. It is moist, just the right balance of sweetness and gingeriness....the cakey cousin of the ginger cookie at Bakesale Betty's, which happens to be just down the street.
This is truly one of the best things I have ever put in my mouth. I had heard AMC had a great baker; now I know it to be true.
And I had their cornbread today....best cornbread I ever ate, really flavorful. It didn't even need butter.
