Move over, pineapple. This rich caramel, pecan and pear cake has a spicy touch!
Updated Sep 17, 2008

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large pear, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk or water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mace or cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • Whipped cream, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In 9-inch round or 8-inch square pan, melt butter in oven. Sprinkle 1/4 cup brown sugar evenly over melted butter. Arrange pear slices in single layer on sugar mixture; sprinkle with pecans.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat remaining ingredients except whipped cream with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on medium speed 4 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter over pear slices and pecans.
  • 3
    Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately place heatproof serving plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Leave pan over cake a few minutes so brown sugar mixture can drizzle over cake; remove pan. Cool at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm with whipped cream. Store cake loosely covered.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use 1 to 2 large fresh peaches instead of the pear.
  • tip 2
    Add a sweet cinnamon-packed punch to this luscious treat by stirring a dash or two of ground cinnamon into the whipped cream just before topping and serving.
