Spiced Pear Bread Recipe

My mom and I put up our own pears, so I always have plenty on hand when I want to make this wonderful bread. It's so moist and delicious that you'll want to have another slice…or two! —Rachel Barefoot, Linden, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 13, 2013

I have cooking class that I do with our residents at our nursing home and they had never ever heard of Pear Bread . We did use fresh pears instead of canned. The bread was amazing!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 24, 2013

Alittle extra clove and this is great. It's not overly sweet. I used canned pears. My 18 month old likes it too.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2012

I rated this a 5 not because I thought it was a five, but I made it Saturday and by Monday evening my family had devoured it! Will make again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 11, 2011

I made the recipe to a tee and both my husband and I thought it was very plain. It was moist which is good but it wasn't near as good as other pear breads I have had in the past. It seemed to be lacking in taste. We had other people over when we had it and they really liked it but it isn't something I will make again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 3, 2011

My husband and I both really liked this. I used pears canned with splenda and then in the bread I used 1/2 splenda and 1/2 sugar. I will make this recipe again but replace half of the gloves with nutmeg.
