    NitaD's Note:

    A lovely dark gingerbread with chunks of pear. I made small loaf tins to give away with my Christmas goodies last year, they were a big hit. They mailed well, staying moist and yummy. Found in a Williams Sonoma cookbook.

      I made the 5 mini loaves of this wonderful gingerbread. I put 4 loaves in the freezer to save for gifts. We really liked the chunks of pear in this. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
