Asian Pear Nut Cake
My friend asked me if I had any dessert recipes using Asian Pears. I said no! I got home 2 days later and she had sent 2 Asian pears via my wife. It's recipe creating time. Came out great!!

  10. Baking Soda 1-1/2 tsp

  4. Butter, melted 1/2 cup
  5. Walnuts or pecans, chopped 1 cup
  6. Asian Pears 1 large or 2 medium
  7. (peeled, sliced lengthwise)
  8. 3. Place wax paper on bottom of two 9 inch round cake pans. Spread butter over paper sprinkle brown sugar and nuts over butter. Place the sliced pear in a spiral pattern. Pour batter over pear, brown sugar and butter, 3/4 full.. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until center is firm.

  1. NOTE ! NOTE! NOTE! This recipe was created from a brown sugar nut cake recipe. I can not change the volume. You may have some (very little) extra batter if you do not have high sided cake pans. Just make a few cup cakes. Don’t over fill the pans. It won’t be pretty!
