Pear walnut cake (with cream cheese)

My colleagues at work asked me to bake a pear-walnut cake (see recipe here ) again. I wanted to make them happy, at the same time as I am still learning, I wanted to try a new recipe I had some spare cream cheese, so I decided to go for a variation of cream cheese pound cake which includes pears and walnuts! The cake was richer than the previosu version (butter instead of oil and added cream cheese) and ofcourse yummier! :D
