3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 cup unbleached white flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cardamom
1/8 tsp. salt
1/3 cup dried currants or raisins
1/3 cup blanched, slivered and toasted almonds
2 cups diced and peeled pears (about 2 large)
2/3 cup pear or other non-citrus fruit juice
1/3 cup maple syrup
3 cups boiling water

Grease and flour a 1-quart baking pan or heatproof casserole.

In a large bowl, combine flours, baking soda, ginger, cardamom,
salt, currants or raisins, and almonds. Stir in pears. In a measuring
cup, combine juice and syrup. Stir wet ingredients into dry
ingredients. Pour batter into baking pan. Cover and wrap tightly
with a sheet of aluminum foil large enough to tuck ends under bottom
of pan.

Place rack or trivet in bottom of pressure cooker. Pour in boiling
water. Lower baking pan into cooker and set on rack. (Be sure
there's a 1/2-inch space between pressure cooker and edge of
casserole.) Lock lid in place. Over high heat, bring to high
pressure. Lower heat just enough to maintain high pressure and cook
25 minutes (30 minutes if you're using a casserole dish instead of
a baking pan).

Allow pressure to come down naturally for 15 minutes. If after 15
minutes pressure is not released, use a quick-release method to
release lid). Remove lid.

Lift baking pan out of cooker. Remove foil and set pan on rack to
cool. Unmold cake or serve from pan. Serve warm or at room
temperature. Serves 6 to 8.

HELPFUL HINT: To lift baking pan or casserole in and out of cooker,
cut a piece of aluminum foil 2 feet long by 1 foot wide; fold it
twice lengthwise. Center casserole on strip and use ends of strip
to lower cassrole into cooker. Fold ends of foil strip over top of
casserole. Use ends of strip to lift casserole out of cooker.
