I just loved this recipe. I did not have a pear so I used one apple and about 3/4 cup of applesauce in its place. Also used some currants along with the raisins in the batter, and sprinkled some extra sunflower seeds, raisins, and currants into the top of the bread. This one's a keeper, in fact I'm making it again this afternoon! Thank you, Manuela. :)
Wonderful...Good texture...Fruity flavor...Not too sweet...
