    Mirj's Note:

    I do love food blogs, and I do love pears. When I came across this recipe on a favorite blog I knew the Gods of Serendipity were smiling down on me that day, even more so that I had too many ripe pears in the house at the moment. I've made a few changes to suit my own tastes, listed in the recipe below.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350° F (175 C in my house).
    2. 2
      Lightly grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan or two 9″x 5″loaf pans. I use my silicon fluted tube pan and don't grease or flour.
    3. 3
      Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
    4. 4
      Scoop out about 1/4 cup of this mixture and combine it with nuts to coat.
    5. 5
      Stir back into the flour mixture.
    6. 6
      In a separate bowl, combine butter, eggs, sugar, pears, and vanilla.
    7. 7
      Add the pear mixture to the flour mixture, stirring just until flour disappears and batter is evenly moistened. Don't overdo it, you want everything JUST moistened.
    8. 8
      Pour batter into prepared pan(s). Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until bread is browned and firm on top. A pick inserted into the center should come out clean.
    9. 9
      Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Then, remove from pan and place top side up on a plate or wire rack to cool completely.
