Pie, crumble, tart, cake,
This is what I chose to make.
Come on over, have a slice,
I hope just one will not suffice.
Maybe you will find the pear’s,
Your brand new fruity love affair.
3 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. coarse salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 T vanilla
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cup milk
3 T water
4 cups ripe pears, sliced (Bartlett or Bosc)
1/4 cup flour
1 cup walnuts
3 T cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If the pears are too hard, saute them in 2 T of butter until they have softened a bit.
This recipe should be mixed with a spatula. In a mixing bowl, add the flour, both sugars, nutmeg, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Gently combine. In a second bowl, add the eggs, vanilla, milk, vegetable oil and water. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. When well mixed, gently fold in the pears.
Pour the batter into a greased and floured springform pan. Set aside.
Add all crumble ingredients into a food processor and pulse until the mixture clumps just slightly. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the cake batter.
Place into the oven and bake for approximately 50-55 minutes. Check with a toothpick at 50 minutes to make sure the batter in the center of the cake has set. Let rest for 10 minutes and then remove from springform pan. Serve with ice or whipped cream. Serves 10-12.

Oh my, this looks like heaven. I love that the pears are baked right in. Sensational!
am i too late
wow! I made a pear cake last summer and never had it again; love that one, because the pears are part of the batter and you are generous with the amount of fruit!
That is one beautiful and delicious looking pear crumble cake. I love that the pears in the cake are sliced in lieu of being chopped AND I love that it’s snowing on your blog!
Love pear cake! The crumble topping makes is extraordinary. And I would add some ginger to my cake 🙂
