. In the words of Rachael Ray "Yum-o". This cake prepared in a skillet looks amazing. I love the taste of cinnamon and pears are likeable. I have never paired the two and I am anxious to see the results of the marriage of these flavors. Thank you for the beautiful picture.

I can not wait to bake this Pear Cinnamon-Sugar Skillet Cake. My family loves pears and this is another way to serve them. Having pear trees in the back yard I am always looking for a way to use them and not allow them to go bad. Having different recipes is the way to go.

This looks very simple to make and absolutely delicious. I would think this is perfect for a breakfast pastry or for dessert. Any suggestions on what variety of pear to use? Judging from the photos, it looks like a Red Anjou is being used, and I'm curious what other ones would work as well. The addition of the pecans just make this perfect for me. I've usually found buttermilk in the dairy case, but I also seem to recall having seen a dried powder version on the shelves.

I recently bought a cast iron skillet so I'm thrilled to find a new dessert recipe to try in it. I love the idea of using pears because I don't often cook with them but I like the taste of them baked very much. So where do you all find buttermilk?Usually I end up making my own because I can never find it in the grocery store. Is it in the dairy case or hiding in the baking aisle?

I love the use of the buttermilk in this skillet cake recipe! It gives the batter a slight tanginess to balance out the sweet of the cinnamon sugar, and keeps it moist and tender. If you wanted, you could substitute apples in this recipe for a fall treat. The flower pattern of the pears on top is so pretty and is sure to impress your company!
