Here's the recipe for you:
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 TBSP all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 dash cloves (I had only whole cloves, so I substituted a hearty sprinkle of cinnamon)
2 TBSP lemon juice
2 cans pear halves (I sliced the halves and only used the syrup of one can)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 TBSP sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk (I never have this so I made my own with milk and lemon juice)
3 TBSP butter/margarine (melted)
1 TBSP sugar
Combine all filling ingredients, except pears, in a large skillet. Stir in sliced pears. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Make topping: Place flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda in mixing bowl. Beat on low with electric mixer about 30 seconds. Add buttermilk and melted butter/margarine. Continue to mix on low for about 30 seconds, or until well blended.
Pour hot filling into 8 or 9" baking pan. Top evenly with large spoonfuls of topping batter. Sprinkle with 1 TBSP sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 min. or until pears are bubbly and topping is golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping.
This will be great to have for dessert tonight with my lemon herb chicken! Hope you have a great Sunday!
