Based on the other reviews I decided to bake the cake for a shorter time about 45 min. and I added about 3/4 cup of applesauce, when the cake come out I brushed the cake with melted butter. I believe these attempts kept the cake moist. I also added cream cheese frosting while the cake was still warm. End result mmm good, reminded me of spice cake. Update: I just had another piece of cake after it had cooled and it did turn out dry like cornbread. I'm baffled.


Awesome way to use up those really soft pears. My whole family enjoyed this wonderfully moist, delicious cake. Thanks.


I've had so many compliments on this and they all want the recipe! Thanks! Michelle
