Pear, vanilla and ginger cake 

Back in 2014 (I’m late to the game, I know) a video of legendary rapper and producer Rick Ross went viral. When asked about his dramatic weight loss he said;

“I eat pears, and shit like that. Shout out to all the pear”.

Watch it here, it’s amazing. And in tribute, I’ve decided to rap the recipe for my pear, vanilla and ginger cake. Because that’s how I roll. 


  • 4 ripe pears
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup pitted dates
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp ginger

Blend the oats and dates in yo food processor,

Don’t forget to put the lid on or you might make a mess-a,

Throw in the pecans and the coconut oil too,

Now whizz it all up till it forms a sticky goo,

Add the almond milk, pears, ginger and vanilla,

Mix until it’s smooth and soft like a chinchilla,

Spoon into a cake tin and stick it in the oven,

Bake it for an hour* and take out with a glove-n,

Don’t be a fool, leave it to cool, even though the smell of it will start to make you drool,

I think you will agree that a cake this good is rare,

So join me when I say ‘shout out to all the pear’!

*at 180 degrees, please, and it will bake with ease

Love, Mrs H xx
