I was very disappointed with this recipe, I had a feeling it was too much oil. It came out so oily, yuck!!!

This is a great cake! The outside is nice and crispy and the inside is pleasantly cakey spicey and sweet :)

I had 4 beautiful pears that my family had avoided eating all week, so I decided to try your recipe. I made a 1/2 recipe and it turned out great. My husband loved it. A lovely light cake with a nice crispness to the outside. We seved warm with custard. Thank you for sharing
