I'm giving this recipe a "4," mostly on potential. Maybe it will be a "5" with some tinkering. It's pretty good, as is, but as Reynbow correctly pointed out, it lacks a little flavor. For those that prefer a subtle, laid back flavor--this recipe might be okay "as is." For me, next time I make these, I intend to add about 1/8 cup sugar and maybe another half can of pears. One thought; Holly may have intended for this recipe to use vanilla yogurt, which already has sugar and offers more flavor than plain yogurt (without sugar added). I've only been cooking for a few years, but I've learned that the best recipes are usually specific, so the cook doesn't have to guess. Finally, I wonder if bumping up the nutmeg and cinnamon would help the cause also.

used fresh pears. They need more flavour.

We liked these. They are very tasty when added flavorings (suggested by previous reviewers) are used. I doubled the amounts of pears, cinnamon and nutmeg, added a tablespoon of ground flax seed, and used vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt. To skinny it down for my diet plan, I used unsweetened applesauce (for the oil), 1/4 cup egg substitute for the egg, and fat-free yogurt. This is a keeper!

I wanted something to use fresh pears, so modified this recipe using 2 fresh pears diced. Did not have the whole wheat flour, so used all-purpose. Overall successful - passed family test - did use orange zest and a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg and vanilla yogurt for additional flavor.

I chose this receipe because the yoghurt,honey and pear are healthy,yummy and so,ingredients that are often in my fridge!I had to take a bit of a risk(normally I am very cautious especailly when its my first time to make something)and use guess how to make them because I have no way to measure some of the quantities I see in alot of on this site like 6g,2g (I put in 3 teaspns of baking powder to nearly 2 cups of plain flour, I don't have baking soda so I leave that out instead of 235ml of canned pear(I grated two fresh pears)I used "greek style" natural yoghurt and tasmanian leatherwood honey.They turned out light and moist with delicate flavours.

Replaced pears with 2 cups blueberries--didn't use nutmeg or cinnamon. Added half a cup brown sugar and 1 tbsp vanilla to liquid mixture. Good!
