Tips

You could definitely put a crumble or struesel topping on this cake or use apples instead of pears! This cake would work well with most fruits.


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Mix the 3/4 cup pecans and dry ingredients, except sugar.

3. Beat the eggs really well and mix with 1 1/4 cups brown sugar.

4. Into the eggs mix the pears, pear nectar, milk and oil/applesauce and once that's fully combined fold in with the dry ingredients.

5. Pour into a greased springform pan or a pan of equal size and sprinkle the sugar on top.

6. 30 minutes into baking sprinkle the pecan pieces on top of the cake and continue baking for another 15-20 minutes.

Cake is done when a toothpick comes out clean.
