This is so addictive, yummy! I loved it and everyone in my family also did. We had guests from overseas who are in love with this bread. I added a handful of raisins and a teaspoon of cinnamon instead of nutmeg and used low-fat yoghurt instead of buttermilk. Its turned out FANTASTIC! From across the miles, a sweet little "Thank You" for the wonderful recipe.

This bread was tasty. Lots of pear flavor came through, although next time I would add some extra spice or maybe a brown sugar crumble to the top. Thanks for posting =)

A very mild bread, which for my tastes, could have used the addition of some cinnamon or more nutmeg. I made exactly per the recipe. As per one of the other comments, it is very nice warm with some butter.

This recipe is wonderful ! I've had several repeat requests to make it and share the recipe. Each time, I change it slightly ( add apple juice or cinnamon ) and it is always loved . Thanks !

I used sour cream instead of yogurt. I found the batter to be a bit thick so I actually used 8 oz of sour cream. I also used cinnamon instead of nutmeg. I recommend it for peach shortcake. Very good.

Wonderful bread and the aroma is fantastic! I made 3 loaves, some mini loaves and some muffins as I had quite a few pears to use up. I omitted the nutmeg and increased the cinnamon as well as doubling the pears. This is delicious! I plan to give some to friends for the holidays in a gift basket of treats.

I really enjoyed this bread. I was looking for a way to use pears that were starting to turn, and this worked great. I will definately make again, but in the future I will add more nutmeg or some cinnamon. Thanks for posting.

This stuff is really good. I love the taste of the pear but unfortunately I only had one pear to use. Next time I'll use at least two. I barely had any vanilla left so I used half vanilla and half almond and DH and I loved the almond flavor. Next time I'd like to add some almond slices to the top. Thanks for the recipe Tonkcats!

This was a delicious and simple to make loaf! I used half whole wheat flour (and added a little more milk to make sure it wasn't too dry) and used brown sugar. Will make again - thank you!
