A beautiful three layer pear and spice cake, held together with a cooked caramel icing. Very special!
This was a delicious spice cake with good texture from the pears and pecans. I did not make this a layer cake with icing, I made a bundt and omitted the icing completely as I think it would have been way too sweet for my tastes. I used spiced pears so I cut back the spices just a tad (used about 3/4 tsp per spice) and the flavor was perfect! - 10 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great cake! It is fluffy and light (so beat the sugar and the butter really good). Instead of making the carmel sauce, I found a recipe for cream cheese glaze and drizzled that on. Will make again since we have three pear trees! - 14 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I did this cake in a bundt pan and drizzled/frosted with maple icing (aka easy penuche frosting). The absolute best harvest time cake/dessert I've made in years!!! Nice change from all the apple dishes this time of year. Wonderful recipe!! If you use the bundt pan though, you're gonna have to add at least 15 minutes to the cooking time. - 15 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
