This sweet and tender bread is perfect for brunch, afternoon tea, elevenses or dessert. It's a great way of making use of pears when in-season. Pears, pecans and cinnamon grace the batter before being baked to perfection. It's the perfect autumn treat to be enjoyed any time of the year.
After i read everyone's very helpful commments, i changed the recipe - 3.5 cups pear processed, then half a cup of pears cut up into chunks. even then, i realized that the joy of pear is in the subtlety of its taste - the bread still barely tasted like pear. i also used 1.75c sugar and halved the cinnamon and used less than 2/3c oil - the extra pears made it wetter. could use a little more soda. maybe some allspice. it's decent bread if you have a lot of pears... - 28 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've made this bread for years now and everytime I make it, I get another compliment on it and a request for the recipe. I make this exact from what your recipe says. Its good with a cup of tea in the morning. - 08 Feb 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This has a very subtle taste to be sure, but it is moist and sweet. I used canned pears which was time saver! - 06 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
