Got this off my Vanilla yogurt and thought what a great recipe. I need to try this. I love coffee cakes. Good for the family breakfast, brunch, or guests!

Delicious! I used two very ripe pears which was just enough to have a single layer of fruit and baked in a 9" square pan. Next time I may even try 3 pears for more fruit taste. I had candied pecans so I substituted those for the walnuts, which worked out fine.
