Warm Sticky Pear Cake
Originally from Taste.com.au

.. with warm toffee sauce ..

It's cold outside. I need a cup of tea (and hot chocolate for my kids ^^) but what can we bake to  eat with? I have lots of nice (well ripe :D) pear in my fridge so why not bake something with pear inside? ^^  This is a very nice soft and tasty cake. Smell of warm cinnamon everywhere in the house.
