"This recipe is from Australian Pears. I made this a few years back and the family loved it. You can serve it just as a loaf bread or as a warm dessert with cream or ice cream. Either way this looks simply stunning to serve. The original recipe gave a tip... which I did use, it stated that they used Betty Crocker Devil's Food Cake mix. Makes 1 loaf"
