Yael Shochat's Pear and Ginger Upside-Down Cake

This cake is a wonderful harmony of spicy ginger, rich batter and sweet fruit. To get the balance right, be sure to use the full amount of ginger and really fill the bottom layer with pears, packed tightly. Note the low baking temperature, which allows the soft batter to cook through.
