  • Peel, core and chop 2 pears. Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (8-inch) round layers, adding 1 pkg. dry pudding mix to the cake mix before mixing with liquid ingredients. Stir chopped pears into batter before spooning into pans for baking. Cool cakes in pans 10 min.; invert onto wire racks. Remove pans. Cool cakes completely.
  • Meanwhile, microwave caramels and milk in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min.; stir. Microwave 2 min. or until caramels are completely melted, stirring after each minute. Add remaining pkg. dry pudding mix; whisk 2 min. Cool 15 min. Gently stir in COOL WHIP. Refrigerate 20 min. or until chilled.
  • Fill and frost cake layers with caramel mixture. Just before serving, peel, core and slice remaining pear. Arrange pear slices on top of cake with nuts.

Special Equipment Needed


Prepare using a yellow cake mix and 2 pkg. (3.4 oz. each) JELL-O Butterscotch Flavor Instant Pudding.

Minimize Browning on Pear Slices

To keep pears looking good for garnishing, toss with orange juice or juice from canned pineapple. Or, dip pear slices into 1 quart of cold water mixed with 3 Tbsp. lemon juice. With either method, pat dry with paper towels before using on cake.

Special Extra

Ensure easy removal of cake layers by covering bottoms of cake pans with circles of parchment paper before filling with batter.
