step-by-step
instructions
Prepare the pears
1 Prepare the pears

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 350°F. Wash and dry the pears; small dice, discarding the cores. Line an 8-inch square cake pan with parchment paper (or lightly grease).

Make the crumble
2 Make the crumble

Melt half the butter in a medium bowl in the microwave (or melt in a small pot on the stove, then transfer to a medium bowl). Add the brown sugar, warming spices, and 3/4 cup of the oats (you will have extra). Stir to thoroughly combine.

Make the batter
3 Make the batter

Melt the remaining butter in a large bowl in the microwave (or melt in a small pot on the stove, then transfer to a large bowl). Let cool slightly. In a separate bowl, combine the biscuit mix, flour, and a pinch of salt. Whisk to thoroughly combine. To the bowl of melted butter, add the sour cream, eggs, honey (kneading the packet before opening), granulated sugar, and 3 tablespoons of water. Whisk until smooth. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Stir until just combined (be careful not to overmix). Gently fold in the diced pears. Transfer to the prepared pan; spread into an even layer.

Assemble & bake the cake
4 Assemble & bake the cake

Evenly top the batter with the crumble. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until the cake is set and cooked through. Remove from the oven and let cool about 1 hour, or until room temperature (for quicker cooling, place in the refrigerator). Enjoy!
