Reviews for Pecan Pear Bread
"nice change from apple bread. very moist."
"this is a nice light textured bread, not overly sweet. I may add a tad more cinnamon next time, because I like it. It will be a fall staple to use up my pear crop"
"Super moist, wonderful taste, quick to mix up - great recipe. Folks at work gobbled it up!"
