Pear Raisin Bread is a simple quick bread recipe. Sweet pears with raisins are what make this a flavorful bread. This pear bread is a great fall recipe you can make for your family!
When comes to sweet fall recipes, you think of apple or pumpkin recipes. What about pears? Pears can be Fall recipes. Pears are sweet like apples, so why not use them in a few fall recipes?
I had received some pears, so I really wanted to make some pear recipes with them. I could do poached pears, but I wanted to make a recipe with pears that would be simple but also tasty.
The idea of doing a pear tart was also a thought. However, in my mind, I thought I could make an apple raisin bread. but make it a pear bread instead.
That is not a bad idea, a pear bread! Pears as I mentioned can easily be substituted in an apple recipe. Pears have this sweetness to them that would be amazing in a simple quick bread recipe. So why not give this pear bread idea a try!
