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.

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...

This has a very subtle taste to be sure, but it is moist and sweet. I used canned pears which was time saver!

Not what I was expecting...a very good bread but very similar to zucchini bread, thought it would have more of a pear taste.

I received a basket of fruit as a gift and it had a lot of pears. No one in my family eats pears so I tried this recipe. My family loved it but I never told them there were pears in it and they couldn't tell. I left the nuts out of the recipe. It was very moist-almost tasted like my pumpkin bread recipe. I would make this again.

Great fruit bread! Minced some ripe pears and had a tasty treat. No other adjustments were necessary. That bread was GONE.

This bread was delicious...almost sweet enough to be a dessert! A hot, buttered slice is a wonderful way to start your day. You will certainly enjoy this moist, flavorful loaf!

Very tasty and easy, but I didn't get much pear taste out of it--the end result was a little like carrot cake. Next time I think I'll increase the amount of fruit I put in.
