      Delicious. Very moist and very cinnamon-y! My pears kind of sank to the bottom but no harm done with that. This cake would taste great with a strong cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk.

      Mmmm,this was yummy! I originally chose this recipe as I had some pears to use,then discovered they had gone all smooshy :( But I really wanted to try it,and found some tinned pears in my cupboard.I had no idea how this would alter it,but me and my partner loved it!Next time I would maybe add a little more cinammon with the dry ingredients,but only because I am a cinammon freak! Thanks for this yummy recipe. (Oh,we had this with warm custard on,and it was gorgeous that way too.)
