With soft pears, crunchy pecans and a delicious cinnamon flavor, this Cinnamon Pear Quick Bread makes for a delightfully delicious snack. Moist, flavorful and topped with a cinnamon-pecan-brown sugar crumble, it will be your new favorite bread!
For the past several days here in Northern Virginia its been cold, rainy and windy. There is something about the cold, dreary weather that comes with fall that makes me want to bake. Perhaps its the craving for something warm and comforting, fresh out of the oven. Or maybe its the wonderful smells that waft through the house while the treat bakes to perfection. I decided that the thing I was craving the most was my delicious Cinnamon Pear Quick Bread!
I can’t even begin to tell you how delicious this bread is once it comes out of the oven. It’s made with fresh pears (right from my local farmers market!), pecans, and the perfect amount of spices to create the most wonderful bread. It’s topped with a sweet, cinnamon-pecan-brown sugar crumble, which adds the perfect amount of crunch to this delicious bread.
I made this bread in my mini loaf pan, which yields four loaves. However, you can also prepare it in a traditional 9×5 loaf pan making one large loaf. Either way, it bakes up beautifully!
Once you put this bread into the oven, prepare for your house to smell amazing! The cinnamon and spices in this bread create such a warm, enticing aroma. You’ll want to slice into this bread right away, and eat it warm. I definitely recommend doing so, and maybe with a little butter on each slice, as well!
Here’s how easily this Cinnamon Pear Quick Bread comes together:
If you’re baking with smaller loaf pans, its nice to have extra loaves to freeze for later. These are great to pull out of the freezer when you have friends join you for coffee, or want to bring in something to the office to share.
Is the fall weather inciting you to bake as well? If so, give this Cinnamon Pear Quick Bread a try. Its such a delicious treat!
