Since I have five loaves of this bread in the freezer I thought it about time I reviewed the recipe! I have no pumpkin pie spice but used 1t of cinnamon and 1/2t nutmeg. The first time I made the recipe I was not fond of the chunks of pear. The second time I grated the pear along with the zucchini and it was fantastic. Thanks for a great way to use up some pears!

Excellent! I had an overload of pears and my neighbor had given me some zucchini, so this recipe was perfect. I used 3 smaller loaf pans. Lovely moist loaves.
