"This dense, moist, creamy-sweet pear cake was the signature dessert of my great-great aunts, Beth and Josephine. It was lost for several years. During that time we tried several different pear cake recipes, but none came close to this one. Now that it has been found again (and slightly updated), I want to share it with all of you, so that everyone can enjoy it!
