Spiced Pear Bread
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling
Makes4 mini loaves (6 slices each)
I'm always looking for new ways to use my homegrown pears, so I decided to give this recipe a try. I'm so glad I did! I made one 8x4-inch loaf and three 5x3-inch loaves, adjusting the baking time accordingly. My husband and I thought the bread was delicious and I will definitely make it again!
This is farandaway the best tasting spiced pear bread recipe I have come across in my life. But, I must emphasize the recipe ingredients and NOT the baking directions. As I got close to readying the pans (I prep and measure first), I knew something was wrong. A medium-mini sized loaf pan does not require 50-60 minutes to bake. Furthermore, this recipe would not fit into 4 pan of that size. I filled two 8.5" pans a bit more than half full and the loaves crested over the top of the pans. It took ~27 minutes for them to test done. The tops look kind of "rustic" but they are delicious! In my thought process, I thought OK they used fresh pears, yet recipe calls for 3 cans (15.25 oz each)--so not fresh poached pears. Anyway, wonderful recipe. Thank you, Rachel!If I could, I'd give it more than 5 stars.
I made this bread last week to send to a friend of mine and it is fantastic!!! The combination of the pears and spices made a delightful bread.
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!
This was a good way to use up some pears I had from my tree. I like that it is not overly sweet, and is a light texture. I may bump up the cinnamon a tad the next time. A great fall recipe
Alittle extra clove and this is great. It's not overly sweet. I used canned pears. My 18 month old likes it too.
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.
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 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.
