"Because I have a busy schedule, I revamped this recipe so I could use my bread machine," writes Maureen DeGarmo of Martinez, California. "I also substituted canned pears, which make preparation even easier. We like it for a weekend breakfast treat."

  • 1 can (15 ounces) pear halves, undrained
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

"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."
