You may wonder (as I did the first time I made it) how it works. With no butter or oil, how can it be so moist? With no eggs or baking powder, how does it develop texture?

1 C. wholemeal spelt flour
1 C. brown rice flour
1/2 teas. sea salt
1 teas. cinnamon
1 teas. freshly grated ginger
1 C. apple juice

2 C. peeled and chopped pears
1 C. "pear sauce" (just chop pears & cook up like applesauce)
