I love pears so when pear season rolls around I love to come up with different ways to cook with them. This recipe never disappoints! Homemade bread is always a hit with my family and this recipe is easy.  It’s absolutely delicious with coffee in the morning. It can equally serve as a dessert as well. This bread would also make a fantastic gift.
