When pears are in season, I love to make this family favorite. It's moist and keeps well, and makes a wonderful dessert as well as a breakfast or brunch cake.

Wow! Everyone at home loved it! Easy to make.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 15, 2013

The cake tasted OK, not very sweet at all. If I did make again, I would substitute mashed pears for half the oil and add some more sugar. But if I'm going to eat this many calories on a piece of cake, I want it decadent. This was more like a loaf recipe in terms of taste and texture.
