  1. Galleygirl's recipe...

    Tom's rendition with more detailed instructions...

    BTW, I made it...be sure NOT to overcook. Drained canned pears also work fine.

    One way I am going to play with this is to add/use almond flavoring (almond extract or amaretto or ground almonds in the cake itself)...

      Will you please let us know how the almond flavoring experiments work? I love almond, and I'd be interested to know if it works with this recipe.
