Fresh Pear Cake

I found this recipe in a magazine when I was first married and have loved it ever since! It is so quick and easy and soooo good!

About 2 T butter
About 1 1/2 cups flour
3 firm, ripe Bartlett pears, (about 1 1/2 lb total)
2 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/8 t salt
Powdered sugar

1. Lightly butter and flour a 9-inch round pan or baking dish; set aside.
2. Peel, core, and slice pears; set aside.
3. With an electric mixer, blend eggs, granulated sugar, milk, and salt. Add 1 1/2 cups flour; continue to mix until well combined. Gently fold half the pears into batter. Spoon into prepared pan; smooth surface flat. Fan remaining pears over top of batter; dot with 2 T butter.
4. Bake in a 350 oven on bottom rack unil cake is golden brown, about 55 minutes. Cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired, and serve. Or cover airtight and hold until next day.
