Moist, held together well, mild pear flavor, mild spice, serves a lot. First time I made this, I did use two whole eggs instead of whites, and switched out the nutmeg with ginger (I love ginger). Following other reviewers, I cut the sugar in half both times. It's just mildly sweet this way, with the ripe pears I had, and that's great. Icing or ice cream would make it sweeter, and I'm sure it would be fine with the full amount - just more of a sweet "dessert" cake. Really, a great use of these pears (although the next day, the pear flavor all but disappears, for some reason.) Thanks for the recipe! UPDATE: 1/2 recipe in 2 mini loaf pans for about 50-55 min works great when you've only got a couple small pears to use up.
