Pear-Licious Breakfast Cake

This is actually a remake of the "Pear Flip-Flop" recipe from the January 23, 2011 edition of Parade magazine. The original recipe used butter, white flour, etc., etc.! The recipe is now much healthier and lower fat. And did I say delicious?

1 TB Earth Balance stick margarine
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 to 1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup soy milk
1-1/4 tsp vanilla
3 TB applesauce
1-1/2 pears, peeled, sliced or diced

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Put margarine in 8-inch square baking pan and put in oven to melt. While it's melting, add dry ingredients together in medium bowl. Add milk, vanilla, and applesauce in small bowl. Add to dry ingredients and mix well. When margarine is melted, take out of oven and pour batter in. Sprinkle or arrange pears on top. The pears will sink a bit while baking. Bake 30-40 minutes; start checking for doneness after 30 minutes; edges will be browned and toothpick will come out clean.
