Leah's notes for this recipe:
This recipe comes from my husband's sweet grandma (Moma Chloe). She made everything with love and a smile! This cake is very moist and freezes well.

With no icing, this cake is so darn easy to transport... which is good since you'll be getting requests for it from all corners! It's sweet and fruity with a healthy hint of cinnamon.


Mix pears and sugar then refrigerate overnight.
Next day, add oil and eggs and stir well.
Add dry ingredients. Mix well, then fold in nuts, coconut and vanilla.
Bake at 350 for one hour and 10 mins. in a 9 x 13 pan.

what do you frost this cake with? sounds good as my husband loves pears..
user Leah Robertson keepinitreal - Sep 2, 2011
We don't frost it! ha Didn't even think about that! ha It is more like a coffee cake or a sweet bread. Very dense.

In your recipe it call for flour is that All-Purpose, or Self-rising? I guess it All-Purpose because it calls for baking soda, I'm I right? The recipe sound good and I'm going to make it as soon as I'm sure about the flour. I wish all recipes that calls for flour that it would say which flour to use. Thanks for your time!
