Very tasty! Easy to make. I altered the recipe slightly based upon previous reviews, and what I had on hand. I left the peel on the pears to enhance the pear flavor, and also because I'm somewhat lazy. Used 1 cup white sugar, and 1/2 cup brown sugar, used 1/3 cup melted butter and 1/3 cup canola oil. For spices I use nearly 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon cloves, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, and a sprinkle of nutmeg. Raw batter tasted somewhat overpowered by the cloves, but after baking, the balance of spices was perfect! I sprayed the cake pan with cooking spray and sprinkled inside with a combo of powdered sugar and cinnamon. Monitor the baking time; at about 45 minutes I kept adding 5 minutes, 5 minutes more, etc. until done. Even after passing the toothpick test, the cake was still a little 'wet' around the pear pieces. I will make again for sure!
