MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 18, 2014

"I seen this recipe and since it's pear season, decided to try it. "Amazing" my family LOVED it. I made recipe exactly, dough is little thick and instead of 2 reg. loaf pans made 6 mini 5x3 loaves. My 11 yr. old grandaughter took it to school to share with her friends, I had my gal pals up for coffee and they raved. I will definately be baking this many times. just deliousous and the bread is moist and yummy and can really taste the pear."

"I've made this bread several times and each time it is delicious - family loves it. I also substitute bananas for the pears and it is now our favorite banana bread as well."

"I used half pears and half blackberries. It was fine, but I just wasn't crazy about the texture of the bread."

MY REVIEW

"I had Olympic Asian pears from my farm share that needed to be eaten. These type of pears weren't too sweet, so I was afraid that the bread might not turn out sweet enough. Not the case at all! This bread is so delicious and easy to make. I will definitely come back later to bake this again!"
