Thanksgiving day is a couple of days away, which means most of us are about to get busy in the kitchen. If you’re still looking for the perfect dessert that your family will love, this Pear Upside Down Cake can be your answer. The deliciously sweet and rich top layer to this cake is balanced with a moist, but less-sweet cake base.

Did I mention that it is super easy to make? And you probably have most (if not all) of these ingredients in your pantry already!


  • 1/4 cup butter
  •  2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 pears, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon All Spice
  • 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 pear, peeled chopped


Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Once it’s melted, stir in the brown sugar. Add the pears and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Pour pear and mixture onto the bottom of the pan and let cool for about 10 minutes.

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, all spice, baking soda and baking powder. In a another bowl, whisk together the melted butter, oil and sugar. Whisk in both eggs until just combined. Whisk in the vanilla extra then add all ofthe dry ingredients to the wet and stir until just combined. Fold in the chopped pear. Spoon the batter over the pears in the loaf pan. Place the loaf pan on a baking sheet. Bake for 65 minutes, or until the cake is set. Let cool for 15 to 20 minutes then flip onto a cake stand or serving platter of choice.
