      What a delicious way to welcome in Fall! I've never made or tasted a pear cake before. There is a difference between using apples and pear in texture. I thought the allspice would be overwhelming, but it was just right and the caramel glaze was the perfect topping to this wonderful cake. I left out the nuts only because I wasn't in the mood. I may add another cup of pears next time. Thanks for posting this recipe, I'll be making it again.

      For 45 years I have tried to find an apple cake like my husband's grandmother made. When he tasted this cake, he actually said, "this cake is very much like Mussie's apple cake." I couldn't believe it! I made it just as the recipe said except for substituting walnuts for pecans. With the glaze I reduced the amount to half and did not cook it long enough to form a hard sugar. This I spooned over the entire cake. As the glaze began to cool, it became harder and I but that small amount on top. I've made this cake three times now, and each time it came out perfect. I'm planning on using this recipe for my traditional Thanksgiving Apple Cake.
