Stir in pears and hazelnuts. Spread batter in pan.
  3. In medium bowl, mix brown sugar and 1/4 cup butter until blended. Stir in 2/3 cup flour; pinch with fingers until clumps form. Sprinkle topping over batter.
  4. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour 5 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, covering with foil during last 25 minutes to prevent overbrowning, if necessary.
