Instructions Checklist
  • In a very large mixing bowl beat oil, granulated sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla and as much of the flour mixture as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour mixture. Stir in the pears and the 1-1/4 cups chopped pistachio nuts. Divide batter among the prepared pans, spreading evenly.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bake about 40 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pans. Cool thoroughly on a wire rack. Drizzle cakes with Browned Butter Icing. If desired, sprinkle with additional coarsely chopped pistachios. Let stand until icing is set.

TIP:

To make a single cake, grease and flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan. Prepare as directed, except bake cake about 70 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
