A question about a recipe: Pear and Cranberry Cake

Eca53719 9cf2 4d36 8bb2 a85372853dfe  dsc 1715

I have a question about the recipe "Pear and Cranberry Cake" from cristinasciarra. I love cranberries and would like to make this recipe.
I do not know where to get fruit brandy. Can it be substituted with anything else? Or does it have to have that ingredient?

Sure, why not? Sherry would be interesting to try. Let me know if you do, and how it works out!

Hi Patt,

The fruit brandy is really not necessary, only if you want to add pears, and only if they are not ripe. (But really, you could just soften them by cooking in a little butter and skip the brandy all together). Pears were my addition to my aunt's recipe, which just calls for the cranberries. So feel free to do what you like fruit-wise! However, if you really would like to use a fruit brandy, you can find them online, or at any well-curated liquor store.

I hope this helps!

Cristina
