This bread turned out MUCH better than other fruit quick bread recipes I've tried. I did a half batch and used half as much honey rather than sugar and added craisins and walnuts.

I substituted a cup of the flour for wheat flour and it came out great. I would recommend using the mini loaf pans as it says in the directions though. I tried it with a 9x9 square baking dish...

It is a tasty recipe, but the pear flavor is somewhat lost in the spices. It is a nice spiced bread though.
