Loved this! It's not only delicious, but beautiful. I thought the cake would dense but it had the consistency of sponge cake, nice and light. I loved the fresh zing of the ginger pear combo and it wasn't overly sweet.I baked it in a black cake pan lined with parchment paper and took it out at 30 mins. Perfect! Thanks for posting the keeper.

A most delicious easy-to-throw together little cake (even without the lovely garnishes)! Such a perfect size for a small household too! I sifted the dry ingredients before mixing with the wet but otherwise stayed on-track with the recipe. It was so hard to wait the 20 minutes before plating as it smelled so wonderful! DH & I each enjoyed a generous wedge with our afternoon coffee - and it was delicious! Thank you "Kathy" for a lovely little sleeper keeper - we will use it over & over!

This is SO good! Loved the pears, lemon and ginger on the top and the sugar-dusted pan made such an awesome texture! Really fabulous recipe! (I have to say I was nervous about the 1/4 tsp. of dry mustard, but I made it as the recipe said and it was amazing!) Thanks for posting this recipe. We'll be making it over and over!

I made this cake 3 times in one week! I initially made this for a nice couple that lives behind us as a thank you. My MIL was in and she and my husband smelled it baking...hence, the second cake. Both of these I made with fresh pears and they were delicious. Later in the week I made this cake for the ladies that take my water aerobics class and I forgot to got get pears but had a can of pears in the pantry. I drained the pears well and proceeded as directed. Beautiful results as well. I had to email copies of the recipe to all of them. It is not too sweet so can be enjoyed for dessert, snack and even breakfast!
