I used the leftover pears from making some homemade pear vodka in this bread. Excellent texture and taste. I followed the recipe exactly and my two loaves were beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for Photo Tag.

I made some peach bread and the flavor is good. The house smells so good while baking. However, it took me 80 minutes to bake them. I wonder is it because of the riped peach?

I made this yesterday with some tangerines. It was very good, and my husband and I ate a whole loaf in 2 days! Will definitely make every time a new fruit comes into season.
