Pear Walnut cake

I found a lot of pears in the grocery store and I picked up a few of them..They were really very ripe and I decided to prepare some dessert with it..Searching for recipes, I came across this fabulously sweet pear cake..I made a few changes in the oringinal recipe..It turned out moist and nice..I did not do any frosting to the cake and it was good..Guess some frosting would add more flavour..
Here is how I prepared this cake..



Pears - 2 ripe ones..I used the yellow ones
White sugar -1/2 cup
Brown sugar - 1/2 cup
All purpose flour - 2 cups
Chopped walnuts - 1/2 cup 
Vegetable oil - 1/4 cup 
Egg - 1 
Vanilla extract - 1/2 teaspoon
Baking soda - 1 teaspoon
Salt - 1 pinch

Slice the pears finely and mix them with the white and brown sugar..Also stir in half of the chopped walnuts..
Allow it to sit for about an hour..
Then puree the above mixture in the blender finely..
To this mixture stir in the flour, salt,baking soda and remaining walnuts..
Mix well to remove any lumps.
Seperately mix the liquid ingredients oil,eggs and vanilla extract.. 
Mix it to the other ingredients and combine everything together.
Preheat oven to 350 degree F (175 degree C).
Meanwhile grease and flour a cake pan and pour the cake mixture evenly.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until you get a nice dark brown crust..The time for baking depends on your oven too..
