    Chef Joey Z.'s Note:

    I made this prize winning cake this morning and I just loved it. I substituted Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour for the all purpose flour and I used soy sour cream and vegan margarine instead any dairy products. The flavor is very nice and nutty. It would go great with a cup of grain beverage coffee. I got this recipe from a Better Homes & Gardens mini-book called the Best of Hometown Cooking. This tasted much better after sitting in the fridge overnight.

      I really enjoyed this cake. I found the directions needlessly complected though, and in the future I will simply mix the pear with the batter and include all the nut mixture on top. I added a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg, and used pecans because I had them. I made it the night before, it was a very hardy breakfast that I look forward to having again. Would work extremely well with apples.

      This was really good. I had pears from a neighbor and I'm not really a big fruit person unless it's in something like cake. Thanks for posting!
