    I made this tonight and it was very good. All the fruit, brown sugar and butter in the bottom of the pan form a nice carmelized topping on the cake after you turn it right side up. I made it with apples instead of pears and it was still great. The cranberries turn out very soft and sweet. I don't plan on freezing this cake but I don't know how it would do with the carmelized topping - it may get too mushy when thawed.

    While I have not made this particular recipe, I have frozen similar dishes with great success. Pear cobblers freeze well as do apple pies, so I would go for it. I would be sure to turn it out of the pan first or you might have to rewarm it to prevent the "topping" from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

    This sounds delicious! But I am wondering how it would do frozen? Do you think the pears would get too mushy?.....With working and preparing for holidays I wanted to get the pumpkin, and apple pies done and frozen and I came upon this recipe..
