I've never heard of Savarin before Tuesdays With Dorie, and was afraid it might be one of those two-day thousand-step recipes. Happy surprise! It was easy. And tasty.
Turns out the pear liqueur was my least favorite thing about the cake. Probably would've preferred a sprinkle of Cointreau (which already sits in the pantry waiting to be used). But at least I have a recipe to experiment with now. I've learned so much. My first soaked cake. Sugar water and liqueur? Far from unpleasant! Nothing to complain about here. And perfect with the organic strawberries that arrived in my CSA box.

|Couldn't believe that tiny bit of batter rose this much|
|My husband said|
"it looks like a big slice of pineapple"
|Pretend you don't see that Reddi-whip...|
And here's a shoe for your viewing pleasure. Have a good week!
