My friends and family thoroughly enjoy this old-fashioned bread. The mellow flavor of pears is a refreshing change of pace from more traditional apples.

MY REVIEW

This recipe was the first pear bread recipe I've ever made. I accidentally put in 1 teaspoon of nutmeg instead of 1/2 teaspoon, though. However, it tastes fantastic! This recipe is definitely a keeper! Me & my family absolutely love the flavor of this bread, and it's so easy to make!

MY REVIEW

Homemade taste, very moist. Instead of vegetable oil, I used melted coconut oil. It gave the bread extra flavor and a wonderful aroma that blended well with the pear. After tasting the batter, I added 1/2 Cup more sugar. This recipe is not overly sweet, yet kid tested and approved. I will make this again.

When it says the better aillbe stiff, they aren't kidding! I got nervous and added some milk, but I will make this again without adding it next time.

I made this bread because I had all the ingredients. My husband, friends and I loved it! Sliced into 1/4" thick slices, it's perfect with a cup of hot tea.
