Toffee Nut Pear Cake

posted by Cyndi

2 fresh Bartlett pears, cored, cut in 1/8's
2 c. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
tsp. nutmeg
tsp. salt
2 c. brown sugar, packed
c. butter (1 stick - no margarine)
1 c. dairy sour cream
1 tsp. baking soda
1 egg
c. chopped nuts
whipped cream, opt.

Sift flour with salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix in brown sugar. Cut in butter with pastry blender until crumbly.
Generously grease a 9" square baking dish. Spread with half the flour mixture; press down evenly. Arrange pear slices on top.
Stir baking soda into sour cream; mix in remaining half of flour mixture, along with the egg.
Pour batter over pears and spread evenly. Sprinkle with nuts.
Bake at 350F, 40-50 minutes.
Serve warm with whipped cream, if desired. CYH
