Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup stick margarine or butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup chopped pear
  • 1 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the flour and next 5 ingredients (flour through ginger) in a large bowl, and cut in margarine with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Remove 3/4 cup flour mixture, and place in a small bowl. Stir in pecans; set pecan mixture aside. Add baking powder, baking soda, and salt to remaining flour mixture, and stir in pear. Combine sour cream, vanilla, lemon rind, egg, and egg white; stir well with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Pour cake batter into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray, and top with pecan mixture. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
