I also doubled it for a potluck at work (adjust the baking time) and used walnuts (didn't have pecans). Make sure you chop the pears small, otherwise its a little chunky. Everybody liked it! It is very sweet, so I recommend a unsweetened homemade whip cream or a "not so sweet" ice cream. My husband doesn't like bread-pudding, but I popped him a piece in the microwave and topped it with some ice cream and he really liked it.
I doubled this for a 9x13 in cake pan and baked it for 1 hour. Yummy! I couldn't imagine how the sauce would bake into the cake - and sure enough! It makes a fantastic sauce on the bottom of the cake! I Served it warm with ice cream. My husband, who is not a dessert eater, had two pieces!!
I halved this for two, and baked it in a deep glass bowl. It came out fantastic, very much like a bread pudding. Served it with homemade ice cream and it was a big hit. I will be making it again, and again.
We doubled this using walnuts in place of pecans and served it to 25 teachers for dessert today at school. There wasn't a speck left. This was quick and easy and not overly sweet. Many asked for the recipe. I am sure we will make this again. Delicious!
I gave this 5 stars. My family really loved this! No it's not a pudding as a reviewer said but a cobbler and a really good one. This was the first time I've ever had a cobbler other then apple and I loved it! I got my copy of this from AAA Recipes. The copy I have is a bit different. The milk is 1/2 cup. Bake time is 45 minutes. The rest is the same. Thanks for posting such a yummy recipe! Christine (internetnut)
I have been making this forever! definitely a family favorite. When I am short on time, I will use Lucky Leaf canned sliced apples (NOT pie filling), but fresh pears or apples are definitely the best!
More like a cobbler then a pudding cake. It was really easy and had good flavor.
