    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.

    This was fantastic! We just loved the The cinnamon and brown sugar. It was very moist. Thanks for posting such a nice recipe.

    Excellent coffee cake. I have to admit that for us it was just a cinnamon coffee cake, no pears or walnuts! While I love both, the other members of my family aren't too keen on them, so out they came. I made this with nonfat plain yogurt and added an extra tsp of vanilla extract, and subbed in soy flour for 1/2 cup of the all-purpose flour. I also used 1 c Splenda for baking plus 1/4 c brown sugar for the sweetener. Tender crumb, sweet taste-- a lovely breakfast. Thanks for posting!

    The Best!!! Very moist and full of flavor. Recommended highly. I subed pecans instead of walnuts. I think you could use sour cream instead of yogurt too. Just excellent. Top stays crunchy and it doestn't get soggy after a day either!!
