Grease and flour an 8" round cake pan. Drain the pears, reserve the syrup, and pat dry with paper towels. Stir flour, sugar and baking powder in a medium bowl and blend. Cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles course meal. Pour the milk over the flour mixture. Toss with a fork just until blended. Do not over mix. Spoon batter into the prepared pan. Smooth top. Slice the pears so they are about 1/4" thick and arrange them on top of the batter in a circular pattern. Brush with some of the reserved syrup and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 400F for about 45 minutes, until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for about 15 minutes and then brush with remaining syrup.
