Caramel Pear Cake

Mr. Food

Serves: 16
Cooking Time: 35 min

What You'll Need:

  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package spice cake mix
  • 2 fresh pears, pared, halved, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

What To Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.  

  2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions and pour into prepared baking dish. Arrange sliced pears in 2 rows on top of cake batter.  

  3. Bake 32 to 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 20 minutes.  

  4. In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, water, and butter to make caramel glaze. Spoon glaze over cake and sprinkle with walnuts. Let cool completely.  

Notes:

  • If you'd like to vary the taste of the cake a bit, use pecans instead of walnuts for a Louisiana praline touch!
