Beat eggs with molasses, sugar, oil and grated pear.
Mix together flour and dry ingredients including baking powder, spices, walnuts, and raisins.
Bake in a 9” x 5”greased loaf pan at 325ºF for 1 hour. I used two smaller loaf pans and cooked until brown on top and a toothpick came out clean, approximately 45 minutes. Cool slightly, remove from loaf pans.
Gingered Cream Cheese (optional):
Mix 8 oz package of cream or Neufchatel cheese with 1⁄4 - 1⁄2 cup finely chopped candied ginger. Mix well and serve with cake at room temperature. If you do not have candied ginger on hand, you may substitute 1⁄4 cup honey and ground or fresh ginger to taste.
