Cinnamon Pear Sheet Cake

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!
