This is delicious bread! I made it as one loaf in a 9x5 loaf pan, and baked it for just over an hour. It is moist and so wonderful from the spices and the pears. I used more pears than called for- two large ones diced up. When mixing together, I was concerned there wasn't enough moisture, but once I added the pears at the end and mixed again, I lost my concern. The pears add enough moisture to tie everything together. I'm making another loaf tomorrow. Thank you so much for this recipe!

Delicious! This quick and easy bread is so flavorful and moist. I made this exactly as written except that my spice measurements were "heaping", and I used 1/4 tsp. Baking Spice Blend Mix instead of the nutmeg. I baked this in my stoneware mini loaf pan for approx. 40 mins.,and it made 3 nice-sized mini loaves of bread. My family loved this and gave it 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this fantastic recipe...it is definitely a keeper!

I put in two more Tablespoons of buttermilk because it seemed too dry.I put it in one large pan and baked it for an hour. My friends all asked for the recipe.

I loved this bread and so did my family. I doubled it and used 2 8 1/2 - inch loaf pans. Very yummy and I will make often as long as pears are in season. I used a pinch of cardamom and Pensey's baking spice instead of nutmeg and cinnamon.

Awesome! I had a couple of pears to use as they were getting a little brown, and this was perfect. Thanks!

I made a double batch of this bread and poured into 3 full sized loaf pans. I accidentally put twice the amount of pears that I should have and it still turned out very delicious and moist. I'm going to freeze two of the loaves. Thanks for this recipe! Hubby loved it.

This bread was so moist and tasted scrumptious. I made this for my family to snack on while they were here for Thanksgiving. They liked it so much, I ended up making another batch for them to take home. Perfect for the fall season. Thanks.
