      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.

      While we really liked the taste of this bread and the reduced fat and calories did have some problems with the recipe. Made twice the first time used fresh pears and made as written, the batter was thick and stiff like cookie dough and the bread came out very dry. Thought maybe I had messed up so made a second time using canned pears and reduced the cooking time to 45 minutes and it came out with a better texture and flavor. Even though the tooth pick came out clean the second time it still should have bake a 5 to 10 minutes more. But the flavor was really very good. Thanks for the post.

      Great flavor and texture! I made a couple of changes-used half Splenda, half granulated sugar, and diced, canned pears. I wasn't sure about the 1/2 egg white listed in the ingredients and assumed it was a typo and used 1/2 CUP of egg whites. Will be making this again!
