    1. 1
      Position oven rack in the middle of the oven; preheat oven to 350°; spray an 8-inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.
    2. 2
      In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar together and spread over the bottom and halfway up the sides of the prepared pan.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle the pears and walnuts over the bottom of the pan; set aside.
    4. 4
      Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices into a big bowl.
    5. 5
      In another bowl, whisk together the egg, brown sugar, molasses, buttermilk, and melted butter.
    6. 6
      Gradually whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, whisking only until combined.
    7. 7
      Carefully pour the batter over the nuts and pears in the pan.
    8. 8
      Bake until the top of the cake is firm and shiny and the sides are pulling away slightly from the pan, 35-45 minutes.
    9. 9
      Remove the cake from the oven, place a large serving plate over the top of the cake, and turn it out onto the plate.
    10. 10
      Remove the cake pan; if any nuts or pears are still stuck to the pan, carefully scrape them, and any of the sweet, sticky sauce onto the cake, smoothing it out with a knife.
    11. 11
      Let the cake cool slightly, the cut into wedges.
    12. 12
      Serve warm, dolloped with whipped cream or sweetened sour cream, if desired.
