This is my own version of another recipe I recently posted. I had a box of gingerbread mix in the pantry and I also had one can of peaches and one can of pears. So I whipped this up and it is awesome, even if it is cheating a little bit!

Ingredients

1 box
gingerbread mix (plus ingredients listed on the box)
1 can(s)
(15 oz.) peach halves in syrup
1 can(s)
(15 oz.) pear slices
3/4 stick
butter
2 c
brown sugar
whipped cream or topping

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt the butter in the microwave and pour it into a 9" square baking pan. Pour brown sugar over the melted butter to absorb the butter and pat it down into an even layer.
2
Drain the peaches and pears and lay the peach halves cut side up on top of the brown sugar. Arrange the pear slices in between peach halves.
3
Follow the directions on the gingerbread mix to make the batter, and pour the batter over the peaches and pears.
4
Follow the directions on the box for oven temperature and length of time to bake. Check for doneness by sticking a knife halfway into the center. If it comes back with batter on it, return the cake to the oven for another 5 or 10 minutes and then test it again.
5
When the knife comes out clean, remove the cake and let it cool for a few minutes.
6
To serve, cut a square out of the pan, and spoon the juices from the bottom of the pan over the cake. Top with whipped cream. Best served hot from the oven.
