This cake is fabulous. I pushed the pears into the batter and added a few on top. I didn't make the sour cream topping...it didn't need it. The cake is so moist and flavorful. Best part is it's super easy and quick. I will be making this cake again soon!! Would like to try it with peaches or apples on top too.
Absolutely delicious, light and satisfying. Everyone at the table asked for the recipe! I only sprinkled cinnamon on top. I added some extra pears and pushed them down. The cake baked over some of the pearsand inside the pears were surrounded by the cake - beautiful & tasty.
Went really fast!!!!!
Everyone loved the look and it tasted good but I did add cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top and I may add nutmeg in the cake next time.
I made this for my church youth group and there was none to take home so you could say it was a big hit
This cake is so moist and delicious. I would definetly make it again. My family loved it.
