      It's so much easier today to get the tastes of old-fashioned homemade cakes without all the old-fashioned fuss. Start with a spice cake mix, add fresh pears, caramel topping and mmmm... Is that old-fashioned enough?

      Serves: 16

      Cooking Time: 35 min

      What You'll Need:

      • 1 (18.25-ounce) package spice cake mix
      • 2 fresh pears, pared, halved, cored, and thinly sliced
      • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
      • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
      • 2 tablespoons water
      • 1/4 cup melted butter
      • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

      What To Do:

      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
      2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions and pour into prepared baking dish. Arrange sliced pears in 2 rows on top of cake batter.
      3. Bake 32 to 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 20 minutes.
      4. In a medium bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour, water, and butter to make caramel glaze. Spoon glaze over cake and sprinkle with walnuts. Let cool completely.

      Notes

      • If you'd like to vary the taste of the cake a bit, use pecans instead of walnuts for a Louisiana praline touch!
