My guests and I really enjoyed this cake. I served it with some ice cream. I was really looking forward to eating the left overs but a few people asked for a slice to take home and that left me with the tiniest piece. I'm definitely making this one again.

I have made this every holiday for the last two years and it always gets raved about. I use whole whipping cream with a dash of sugar and smigden of vanilla, hand whisked in a frozen stainless steel bowl, is well worth the effort. This year I will be making two.

Wow! This was delicious, and very pretty. Dense, moist, spicy gingerbread, and the pears were caremalized and glossy. Several guests asked for the recipe (the highest possible praise!).

This cake is so YUMMY and easy to make! Served by itself or with ice cream it's great.

I really liked this but my extended family weren't as pleased. Those who aren't accustomed to stronger spices and tastes like ginger did not like it. It definitely seemed to run along the lines of who experiments with different flavors and who are just meat/potato folks. I would certainly make this again but would consider the people eating it.

So good, I made it twice in 2 weeks. Fabulous!
