I made pear bread II yesterday. I made 6 loaves. Some caved in at cooling. I think they did not cook long enough, even though my toothpick came out clean at test. If I put the concave loafs back in the oven will it harm the flavor?

It probably won't will likely dry out the done bits significantly by the time the middles are recooked. I'd suggest ripping them apart and using the done parts(it might all actually BE done, a sunken middle doesn't always mean uncooked) for a trifle or dry them out for sweet croutons for a fruit salad, etc. Next time, make sure your pans aren't over filled and also you might consider lowering the temp on the oven by about 25 degrees.
