Glazed German Spice Cake

1 package (18.25 ounces) German chocolate cake mix

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped, divided

1 can (15 ounces) sliced pears in light syrup, undrained

3 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon plus spice blend

1 cup powdered sugar

3-4 teaspoons milk

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1. For cake, spray a stoneware fluted pan with vegetable oil.

2. Place cake mix in a bowl. Chop walnuts; reserve 2 tablespoons for garnish. Place remaining walnuts into batter bowl. Drain pears, reserving juice; pour juice into a measuring cup. Add enough water to juice to measure 1 1/3 cups. Add liquid, eggs and spice blend to batter bowl; mix until well blended. Chop pears using a food chopper; stir into batter. Pour batter into pan, spreading evenly.

3. Microwave cake on HIGH 13-14 minutes or until cake tester inserted near center comes out clean. (Cake will be slightly moist on top, near center.) Let stand in microwave 10 minutes. Invert onto a round platter.

4. For glaze, combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl; whisk until smooth. (Glaze will be thick.) Pour glaze over cake. Sprinkle with reserved walnuts. Serve.

Cook's Tip: Pumpkin pie spice can be substituted for the cinnamon plus spice blend, if desired.

If using a microwave oven without a built-in turntable, rotate cake a quarter turn after each 3-minute interval of cooking.

To bake in a conventional oven, preheat oven to 350F. Bake 50-55 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Proceed as recipe directs.
