So I made this cake last night. It is deliciously moist, and fruity. Try it out! So far as I know, it is a unique and one-of-a-kind original recipe :-)
- 1 boxed white cake mix
- 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 29 oz can Pear Pieces in Light Syrup
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven, grease bottom only of a 9 x 13 pan. Drain pears, reserve liquid. Use liquid from can of pears in place of the water called for on cake mix box, add cinnamon: otherwise, prepare as directed. Add the drained pairs, stir in by hand.
Pour cake mix into prepared pan and bake as directed on box. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. While waiting for cake to cool, prepare frosting
- about 2 cups powdered sugar
- about 1/3 cup shortening
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- remaining reserved liquid from pears
Beat together shortening, powdered sugar, and cinnamon. Gradually beat in pear liquid, a few tablespoons at a time until frosting is the desired consistency. When cake is cool, spread frosting on cake and enjoy!
