Studded with juicy pears, topped with a wealthy and sticky caramel sauce with toasted walnuts, and that includes a splendidly moist and tender crumb, this Caramel Pear Walnut Cake is mouthwateringly scrumptious!

The creation of this cake resulted from two issues:  At the beginning, a large yearning for one thing candy and secondly, I had two pears on the verge of loss of life that had been begging for use.  My thoughts beginning drawing associations:  What goes properly with pears?  Caramel.  What goes properly with caramel and pears?  Walnuts.  And with that I went to work and a cake was born that’s merely out of this world scrumptious!

I really like pears however they’re a bit of irritating.  They’re typically both method too arduous and inexperienced and by no means ripen into something palatable, or they go from ripe to over-ripe in a single day.  (Strive buying pears in bulk and watch the latter occur to all of them on the identical time and check out to determine what to do with a whole field of over-ripe pears.  That’s occurred to me on a couple of event and the reply for me was making bulk Caramel Pear Butter.)    However if you happen to solely have just a few over-ripe pears to take care of I’ve the right method to make use of them:  This extremely scrumptious Caramel Walnut Pear Cake!  And the riper the pears the higher.

This cake is really one thing particular.  It’s so lusciously moist and flavorful and the toasted walnut caramel topping is positively irresistible.  Give it a try to I’m assured you’ll agree.
