Apple Pear Cake

 Apple Pear Cake
When my sister Catherine made an apple cake for me, I asked her for the recipe. I made it a short time later and added some pears to the recipe, since we have pear trees on our acreage. The cake was very moist and tasted so good. Now every time I make it, people want my recipe. —Mary Ann Lees, Centreville, Alabama
