Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made substitutions and still, the cake came out delicious. I made substitutions and still, the cake came out delicious. I used a white cake mix instead of a yellow cake mix, fresh pears instead of canned, and raisins instead of walnuts as these were what I have on hand. I had difficulty mixing the batter using a hand mixer. The batter went up the beaters and got the mixer base dirty. If you were to substitute raisins for walnuts, add it after 30 minutes of baking or after baking so it won't get burnt.

I used Fat Free Cream Cheese and had forgotten to get the sour cream so I substituted Fat Free Vanilla yogurt. I also used the cinnamon swirl cake mix. It was very moist and very sweet. I mixed the cinnamon topping with the lemon jello. If I make it again, I will eliminate the extra butter and just use 1/2 of the cinnomon topping. Made it for a funeral and got lot's of compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe three times in the span of a week and a half. I made this recipe three times in the span of a week and a half. I made it first because I love pears. My husband and I really liked it so I made it for my son when he came home on the weekend Then my brother-in-law and his wife visited (he likes pears too) I made it for them and they had to have the recipe. Everyone raved about it. Will definitely be making it again....and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cake! Wonderful cake! It was very easy to make. The batter is VERY thick. I thought I'd made a mistake but it turns out yummy! Great texture. The pears are nice surprises! The jello on top results in a sweet, fluffy crust. A nice, rich cinnamony, nutty confection that would be perfect paired with whipped cream or a scoop of rich vanilla ice cream. I am definitely making this again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cake was an instant hit with my oh-so finicky eater husband. This cake was an instant hit with my oh-so finicky eater husband. He liked it so well that he has asked me to make one for the office birthday brunch in a few weeks. I erred by using a yellow cake mix with "pudding in the mix" but it turned out fabulous. It is excellent served warm with a little cream poured over it, as well. Mmmmmmmm!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Baked this today. Baked this today. Recipe called for 40 minutes, baked only 35 and it was still dry - not moist at all. It also needs more pears, I feel. I would add more next time. They yellow cake mix also did not give much flavor, I would probably use lemon cake mix or add lemon extract next time. All in all, too dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for a breakfast at my church and everyone loved it! I made this for a breakfast at my church and everyone loved it! I was very skeptical about the lemon jello, but loved the combination. I like that I can put it together so quickly with mostly pantry items. I think there are lots of fruit/jello flavor combinations you could try with this recipe.
