Fresh Pear Bread

"'When our tree branches are loaded with ripe juicy pears, I treat my family and friends to loaves of this cinnamony bread that's richly studded with walnuts and pears,' writes Linda Patrick from Houston, Texas. 'I always receive raves and requests for the recipe.'"

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; stir into the egg mixture just until moistened. Toss pears with lemon juice. Stir pears and walnuts into batter (batter will be thick). Spoon into two greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

this was awesome-my whole family loved it. next time i'll probably just use 4 pears instead of measuring out 4 cups (which was about 3 and a half pears)

This was delicious! I cut the recipe in half and left out the walnuts. It was moist a very sweet. Next time I'll try it with the walnuts. Wonderful bread!

Excellent recipe, halved it to make one loaf but didn't change anything other then using wholemeal flour instead of white. Absolutely scrumptious and will definitely make again. Thanks for the g...

This is awsome! I pulled the first batch out of the oven and it didn't have time to get cold my family dived into it right away and just kept eating until it was gone.

I made this as a dessert-type thing to have after a roast pork as I had an abundance of pears, and the whole family loved it. Yummy and moist, with a pleasant yet subtle taste of walnuts. Will b...
