Pear 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. 

 

Pear bread

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!
