I love easy cakes and this is definitely one; using fresh or tinned pears in a basic cake batter it is great warm as a dessert with ice cream or cold sliced.
A really nice cake. I used fresh pears but I didn't have cloves, so added a little cinnamon. The cake needed an extra 10-15 minutes in addition to the 50 minutes for it to cook through, and to brown the top. - 11 Apr 2011
Nice cake. I had very overripe pears and puréed them. I added cinnamon instead of clove. Very strong pear taste which was great. - 23 Jan 2014 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Really good cake, best of all others couldn't tell it was G.F. - 26 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
