Both my sis and me loved this bread! It is moist, soft and has a wonderful, wonderful flavour! The ginger and pear go so great with the vanilla. Mmm!
I didnt have any trouble with the batter being too dry, even though my pears werent that juicy.
Due to time constraints I decided to bake the batter in muffin tins, which worked out really well. I got 8 muffins from the recipe and they baked through in 25 minutes.
I reduced the ginger a tad and also the sugar quite considerably (to 1/4 c splenda in total) and that was perfect for us.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this recipe with us, Annacia! Well make it again.
Made and reviewed for the Spain/Portugal Tag Game and 1-2-3-Hit Wonders April 2011.
