Yummy Pear cake

Ho hum snowed in. What to do but bake and make jam. I had these three sad pears just wasting away on my counter. Zach is out of school and demands extra food and attention. This cake fits at least one need.
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup Agave Nectar
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
3 cups All purpose flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped dates
3 cups chopped pears
1 cup chopped walnuts

Cream sugar, oil, and agave. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, vanilla, dates, pears and walnuts. Put into a greased and floured pan and bake at 325 for about 1 to 1 hour 15 minutes or until done. This will get very brown, but will remain moist and yummy. Enjoy!
We gobbled it up warm with cocoa for Zach and coffee for me.
