Macadamia Fudge Torte
In large bowl, combine cake mix, cinnamon and oil; blend at low speed 20 to 30 seconds or until crumbly. Mixture will be dry. Place pears in blender container or food processor bowl with metal blade; cover and blend until smooth.
In large bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups of the cake mix mixture, pureed pears and eggs; beat at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed. Spread batter evenly in spray coated pan. Drop filling by spoonfuls over batter. Stir nuts and water into remaining cake mix mixture. Sprinkle over filling.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool 10 minutes. Remove sides of pan. Cool 1 1/2 hours or until completely cooled.
In small saucepan, combine sauce ingredients. Cook over medium low heat 3 to 4 minutes or until well blended, stirring occasionally.
To serve, spoon 2 tablespoons warm sauce onto each serving plate; top with wedge of torte. If desired, serve with vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt and garnish with chocolate curls.
