Reviews for Pear Yeast Bread
"Moist and tasty. We made it for dinner to go with soup. The spice and fruitiness was a nice contrast. It would also be excellent for breakfast or with coffee or tea."
"This is my recipe, and yes the amout of yeast is incorrect. I actually submitted the original recipe with 1½ teaspoons of yeast, which is better in my machine. Try it with a sweetened cream cheese spread on it."
"I bet it is 2-1/4 teaspoons"
"I would like to know how much yeast to add....2 1/4 cups of yeast sounds like a lot...are you sure that it's really that much"
"21/4 cups yeast ?"
