I made this spiced pear bread a while back and I am finally sharing the recipe with you today.
Have you ever had pear bread before? This was my very first experience with it. I’d never eaten it or made it before, but I knew I wanted to experiment with the idea.
I tweaked my favorite zucchini bread to get today’s lush recipe. The result was a super moist and flavorful bread infused with pear and warm spices.
The grated pear in this recipe is what makes this bread impeccably moist, along with a bit of oil. Don’t try to substitute the oil with butter. Although the butter will aid in flavor, it will not aid in moisture the way oil does. All of my quick breads use oil, even if just a little. It’s a necessity.
You’ll need brown sugar and honey to sweeten today’s bread. I love the rich sweetness that the brown sugar provides. It marries well with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. I tossed in some raisins for good measure, but you can totally forgo them if you want. The bread will still be AMAZING.
The sweet glaze on the top provides another layer of yummy decadents. And it makes the bread look pretty. This you mustn’t skip. The glaze is needed and ties all of the elements together.
This bread is like fall in a warm loaf. But trust me; you will want it all year round.
