Pear Preserves Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: May 5, 2012
Didn't taste the Pear's (which was OK for me as I don't like pear's), I didn't use much icing on it and I kinda wish I had... Will make again, only next time I will actually put the icing on the cake.

Recipe correction - I am new to baking and did not know this. When making the frosting, the recipe states it should be of soft ball consistency. You should take a spoon and drip frosting into a glass of water to check consistency. I didn't know this and over cooked the icing. Other than that, the cake was really good. The icing is not really required. Although I did enjoy breaking my icing and eating it like candy. LOL.

I love this recipe, it needs no adjustments. I made this cake using my own homemade pear preserves and served it at my family reunion. I will make this again and again (or at least until I am out of homemade pear preserves and have to can more) and it is printed and in my recipe book to be baked for years to come :) I serve the cake topped with vanilla glaze and decorated with a handful of candy corn. Thank you for sharing.

Pretty unremarkable. Has a good texture, but the flavors don't stand out at all, other than sweetness from the icing. Will not make again.

I did this cake in a bundt pan and drizzled/frosted with maple icing (aka easy penuche frosting). The absolute best harvest time cake/dessert I've made in years!!! Nice change from all the apple dishes this time of year. Wonderful recipe!! If you use the bundt pan though, you're gonna have to add at least 15 minutes to the cooking time.

This was a delicious spice cake with good texture from the pears and pecans. I did not make this a layer cake with icing, I made a bundt and omitted the icing completely as I think it would have been way too sweet for my tastes. I used spiced pears so I cut back the spices just a tad (used about 3/4 tsp per spice) and the flavor was perfect!

Great cake! It is fluffy and light (so beat the sugar and the butter really good). Instead of making the carmel sauce, I found a recipe for cream cheese glaze and drizzled that on. Will make again since we have three pear trees!
