Let Them Eat Cake

OK, so we got hungry and ate her.


2 tablespoons butter
2 large pears, ripe, coarsely chopped
1 cup grated zucchini
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2/3 cup plain yogurt
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a bunt cake pan.
Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the pears, tossing occasionally, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the sugar, and the cinnamon. Set aside until needed.
Whisk together the yogurt and the remaining sugar in a large bowl, until very smooth, about 2 minutes. Combine the flour and baking soda, then add the oil and eggs, whisking well after each addition. Stir the pear pieces and zucchini into the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly. Set on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
