The cake was baked in a 10-inch cast iron skillet. The pears were spaced nicely but did shrink while cooking and I would recommended putting them closely together so that as they cook they will be spaced more evenly. Everyone loved this even though it was served at room temperature.
This is a simple and tasty upside-down cake. Thanks so much for posting.
Lovely cake and so good. I used 3 anjou pears and baked in a round baking dish instead of skillet. Inverted onto a cake plate and served with whipped topping.
Easy to make, moist and delicious. Three guests asked me for the recipe! (I used Granny Smith apples and real maple syrup, doubled the recipe in a large skillet and inverted onto a foil-covered pizza pan.) Serve warm with high-quality vanilla ice cream.
