Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 13x9x2 inch baking pan, set aside.

In very large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon ; make a well in center of mixture and set aside.

In medium bowl, combine eggs, oil and vanilla, stir in pears and nuts.

Oh that cake looks simply lovely and I bet those pecans add a delicious crunch in every bite. I have a linky party on my blog every week called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link this up.
