How to make it

  • Make cake:
  • Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Butter cake pan.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and spices.
  • Beat together sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla with an electric mixer until combined well.
  • At low speed, mix in pears and cranberries, then mix in flour mixture until incorporated.
  • Spoon batter into pan.
  • Bake until a wooden pick inserted into center of cake comes out clean, 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • Cool in pan 30 minutes, then turn out onto a rack and cool completely
  • Make glaze:
  • Bring cream, brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, cinnamon sticks, and a pinch of salt to a boil in a small heavy saucepan, stirring occasionally, then simmer until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.
