1 package (18.25 ounces) German chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped, divided
1 can (15 ounces) sliced pears in light syrup, undrained
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon plus spice blend
1 cup powdered sugar
3-4 teaspoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

For cake, spray a bundt pan with vegetable oil.

Place cake mix in a bowl. Chop walnuts; reserve 2 tablespoons for garnish. Place remaining walnuts into batter bowl. Drain pears, reserving juice; pour juice into a measuring cup. Add enough water to juice to measure 1 1/3 cups. Add liquid, eggs and spice blend to batter bowl; mix until well blended. Chop pears using a food chopper; stir into batter. Pour batter into pan, spreading evenly.

Microwave cake on HIGH 13-14 minutes or until cake tester inserted near center comes out clean. (Cake will be slightly moist on top, near center.) Let stand in microwave 10 minutes. Invert onto a round platter.

For glaze, combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl; whisk until smooth. (Glaze will be thick.) Pour glaze over cake. Sprinkle with reserved walnuts. Serve.
