Holiday Pear Bread

If you are a fan of banana bread, you may love this too! It’s as a new twist on an old recipe.  It may come in handy especially at this time of year when many get holiday fruit baskets and you often do not know what to do with the beautiful pears you may receive. This holiday pear bread became a quick new favorite in my house.  It is moist and full of flavor. 

Yummy with morning coffee and tea!!
