    GaylaJ's Note:

    Wonderful bread--moist, delicious, and full of pears. I baked it on a cold snowy day, and the lovely aroma wafting through our home was warm and comforting. I was searching online for pear recipes and found this one on another site. It gets even better the day after it's made.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 24



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350F (I baked at 325F convection).
    2. 2
      Generously grease two large (9X5-inch) loaf pans--the long pieces of pear make the loaves more susceptible to sticking in the pans and falling apart, so make sure you grease generously. (I lined the bottom and sides with a long piece of greased waxed paper, leaving enough extra at the sides to lift the loaf out of the pan.).
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, vegetable oil, molasses, and eggs; mix in salt, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and allspice.
    4. 4
      Stir the pear slices in, coating them evenly; stir in the flour.
    5. 5
      Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.
    6. 6
      Bake for 50-65 minutes (I baked mine right around 60 minutes).
    7. 7
      Allow loaves to cool in pan about ten minutes before removing them and placing them on a wire rack to cool.
    8. 8
      Note: I halved the recipe, making one loaf, and used 1 whole egg and 1 egg white.

      Excellent flavor and aroma! I didn't add the ginger, allspice or cloves -- only the cinnamon -- and the flavor was still excellent. It has a wonderful molasses flavor that reminds me of molasses cookies. Even my little 20-month old son loves the bread!

      This is probably the best quick bread I have ever had! It came out very moist and tasted so good. The combination of the pears with all of the different spices and the molasses worked very well. It made a lovely treat while still warm from the oven. Thanks for the great recipe!
