"Fantastic cake! I don't bake much so this was a very easy recipe. I used Hodgson Mill's Whole Wheat Gingerbread Mix and fresh pears. Would make this again!"

"This cake was very rich and delicious. However, I would recommend eating it all in the same day because it does not keep well in the fridge."
