I wanted to make something different for breakfast. Donuts were too sweet. Pancakes were too messy. I searched the cupboard and found a box of yellow cake mix. I found a few overripe pears in the fridge. Pear Coffee Cake it is!
Slice the pears, skin and all. I prepared the cake mix according to the directions and poured the batter into a 13 x 9 inch glass dish. Top the batter with sliced pears. Sprinkle the pears with cinnamon and brown sugar.
Bake the cake according to the package instructions based on the pan size. Let it cool and eat it for breakfast or a dessert!
