    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is so good.... a moist cake with sliced pears, skillet-baked in a brown sugar sauce, inverted onto a platter for serving, this is a winner.

      This tasted like a gingerbread with pears to me. We liked it, but I don't know that I would make it again.

      I remember this cake oh so well because I was pretty worried how this would turn out when I'd first made it{you know, inverting the pears was sort of scary - this is about the time when I was quite new at baking}. I used honey as a substitute for the molasses. This was one heck of a good cake! Thank you for bringing back happy memories:)
