Fresh Pear Bread
When our tree branches are loaded with ripe and juicy fruit, I treat my family and friends to lots of pear recipes. I always receive raves and requests for this particular recipe because of the mix of fun ingredients.—Linda Patrick, Houston, Texas

Dec 20, 2019I baked four smaller loaves. Very good. I’ll make this every year when the pears come on.
Dec 9, 2019Such an amazing recipe for moist delicious bread! It’s great straight out of the oven and at room temp. I used most of 3 Asian pears to make the bread and it is so so good, I’ll be making more!
Nov 25, 2019Wonderful! This is the first time I have had pear bread. It was a hit! I used half brown sugar and half regular sugar due to what I had on hand.
Oct 19, 2019Excellent recipe! Based on other reviewers' comments, I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 cup white sugar. I also added in some nutmeg. It baked perfectly and is a deliciously light bread. I will definitely make this again.
Oct 5, 2019My pears were not quite ripe and still quite hard so after I chopped them, I put them in the microwave with about 1/4 cup sugar and a couple tablespoons of water for about 4 minutes. This softened them up as well as sweetening them a touch. The batter was VERY thick, but after adding cooked pears, it smoothed right up. Other than that, I followed recipe to a T. I omitted the walnuts because not everyone likes them. I'm taking to church tomorrow to serve with coffee after our service.
