  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Place raspberries in a separate bowl. Spoon 2 tablespoons flour mixture over raspberries and toss until coated.
  3. Combine pears, brown sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into pear mixture until batter is just combined. Gently fold raspberries and pecans into batter. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours. Cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing loaf to cool completely on a wire rack.


  • Cook's Note:
  • At high altitude, bump back the oven temperature 10 to 15 degrees, and add 1 additional tablespoon all-purpose flour.

Basically, I followed the recipe as stated. I noticed at once the lack of regular sugar and should have followed my instinct to add some type of extra sweetner. I will possibly try to improve ...

I would run the raspberries through a sieve the next time, as the seeds are a huge bother and get stuck in my teeth, or just use cranberries. The flavor was great.

will make again but not with the pears, will sub with another fruit or add more berrys.
