    I have a tree in the yard that has really firm pears. Not Bartlett. I cut this down to 2/3 and made cupcakes, or muffins. 375, 21 minutes, 20 muffins. Very tasty, although the pears were probably chunkier than they were supposed to be.

    This cake is awesome, it's tall, moist, tender, flavorful and delicious. It was quick and easy to make with terrific results. The allspice is lovely with the pear, and adds a nice layer of spice to this tasty treat. I must say for a large cake, the crumb is perfect, simply perfect. The caramel glaze is so good, it is the perfect topping for this cake. I had to omit the nuts as dh is allergic but other than that I made it as written and I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you for sharing a new family favorite that we will enjoy again and again. Made for Culinary Quest 2014 - Suitcase Gourmets - 2014.
