This mainly tasted like a white cake. I used Del Monte canned pears in juice 1 can drained almost 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 C diced walnuts. I increased the fruit

I can just buy the same thing at the super market. A whole lot easier and no clean up.

I wonder if you could get more pear taste by adding small chunks to the finished batter. Also wondered if it would work to swap out white wine for some of the liquid, like in poached pears. The question is how much.

I love this cake, had to make two desserts for a barbeque and this was a total hit too. I like pears and have been wanted to try it. It is so moist. Love it.

I always keep cakes moist too

The cake is definitely moist and very tasty. However, there is no pear taste even after I added extra pears. May try it next time using canned peaches.

I first made this recipe when my children were both preschoolers years ago, (phew, they are 23 and almost 19 now!!!) and this was something easy to make with an autistic (Asperger's) toddler, my son, who is the youngest, hanging on me. We loved it, especially my daughter, the oldest, who loves pears. I soon experimented and found that it works well with any flavor cake mix, we liked it with a spice cake mix or a yellow cake mix, and that you can use any same size can of fruit that is marked "light" meaning it is in it's own juice. It is very good with pineapple and also mandarin orange segments too, for example. It also was great to slice and put in zipper bags to freeze, and then take along on picnics, fishing trips, nature walks, and camping, since it is so moist that it doesn't need icing.

Made this for a family gathering. Even the little ones loved it and it was so easy. I added just a bit of cinnamon and it brought out the taste of the pears.

Just a so-so dessert. I followed the directions precisely and what I got tasted mainly like white boxed cake mix. The pear taste was really undetectable. The only real perk of this dessert is the ease, but I would not make this again as there are so many good TOH pear desserts like gingerbread cobbler.

I made this using fresh pears which are in season right now - it was good but i'll try it with the canned pears next time
