Spiced D'Anjou Pear Bread
More like cake than bread, this 'plummy' creation is moist and delicious. The pears and spices combine so tastily that I only bake this when there are other people around so I won't eat both loaves all by myself.
It is very important that you add the pears BEFORE the flour. If you try stirring them in after you've added the flour, it will seem impossible to mix them evenly into the thick batter.
