Recipe by staceyelee

This is one of the many recipes from my grandmothers cookbook. She passed away in May of 2005 and I am recording her wonderful recipes for my family and the many generations that will follow. I hope you enjoy her recipes as much as we do. I have not made each one yet-so cooking time and servings may vary. Blessings from FOURMRANCHWIFE in Texas This is Nannys sister recipe- was published in a local newpaper- years ago.

This is a fantastic recipe! Everyone in my family loved this moist, delicious cake. And it makes an awesome fall cake with the cinnamon and nutmeg. A winner!

UPDATE: I had a bumper crop of pears this year and I have made this cake FIVE times so far. I will probably make several more before the pears are all used up. I don't bother with the icing, the cake is absolutely perfect alone. I'm putting all the extras in my freezer for use over the holidays. I can't stress enough how wonderful this cake is.
