PEAR PUDDING CAKE

This cake recipe was given to me when I was cooking for the High School in Stayton, Ore.
The original recipe served 96 portions and was baked into two 18" x 26" x 2" pans.
I thought it was so good that I sized it down to a 9 x 13 pan and cut it 4 x 6 and it serves 24 portions.
I'm going to try and put a picture of the original recipe so you can see what it was.
