A yummy and dense pear cake

The Mixed Stew crew decided to try and make this upside down yellow cake and really liked the results.  Here’s the recipe. 

What you will need:

1 baking spatula
1 (9 inch) round cake pan with deep sides
1 medium bowl
1 standing mixer w/ bowl
10 tbspns butter (1 ¼ whole stick), softened
3 - 4 pears cored and sliced thin
1 ½ cup flour
½ cup brown sugar
½ tspn salt
½ cup milk
1 ½ tspn baking powder
1 tspn cinnamon
½ cup sugar
2 eggs
½ tspn vanilla

Cooking and Directions:

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.  Grease bottom and all sides of cake pan with 2 tbspns butter.  Pour brown sugar on bottom of pan.  Spread brown sugar evenly.  Arrange and pile pear slices evenly on top of brown sugar layer.  Next, combine baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in medium-sized bowl.  Set aside.  Cream sugar and rest of butter in mixer until light and fluffy then add the eggs and vanilla until mixed well.  Now, add milk and flour to the batter in alternating intervals until ingredients run out.  Toss in cinnamon mixture and incorporate well.  Pour and spread the finished cake batter evenly over the pears.  Bake for 45 minutes to an hour.  Sides of cake will pull away from edge of pan while baking.  Pull out done cake and let it rest for 30 minutes.  Then quickly and carefully invert on to a serving plate.
