Fresh Pear Bread
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling

This bread was moist and refreshing. I liked it so much, I made it again as Christmas gifts. I made the bread gluten free and it was just fine as a 1 for1 substitution.
I tried this recipe and my family loves it! I buy pears and let them ripen just to make this bread. I mash the pears, cut them up, let them sit in a mixture of water and lemon juice while I take the pieces out and mash them. I then freeze the pears until I am ready to make the bread again. I also add an extra egg which makes the bread come out more moist, and I use a mixture of pecans and walnuts. Next time time I'm going to use Veronica's idea of substituting applesauce for the oil.

This is outstanding. I would never have thought to use pears in bread! My husband also loved it. Thanks so much for this fabulous recipe
I made this today & used applesauce in place of the oil and slivered almonds in place of the walnuts. It is yummy. Very easy to make. Freezing one of the breads but eating the other now. Had a delivery from Harry & David with Pears so it was a great way to use up some of the them before they went bad.
I made it just as the recipe said, no changes. It was very good. Everyone who tried it, liked it. Great way to use up winter pears.
A very moist bread. I added allspice and cloves. Very tasty. I will fix this again!
This recipe is at best a 2 star. If you like bread pudding, you will like this recipe. Would not make it again.
Absolutely delicious! I don’t like pears but have found a great way to get rid of them.
Very good. I reduced sugar about 15%. I made 1\2 recipe and rather than dividing an egg used just 1. Added about 2tablespoons water. Used a mix of oil and applesauce. Baked only 40 minutes and it was done. Added ginger, nutmeg. Super moist. I added a 1\4 cup crushed shredded wheat for crush rather than nuts.
