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!

With soft pears, crunchy pecans and a delicious cinnamon flavor, this Cinnamon Pear Quick Bread makes for a delightfully delicious snack!
Ingredients
  • 1 c. fresh pears, peeled and diced
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ c. vegetable oil
  • ½ c. plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1½ c. flour
  • ¾ c. sugar
  • ⅔ c. chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. cloves
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • For Crumble Topping:
  • ⅓ c. chopped pecans
  • ⅓ c. brown sugar
  • ⅓ c. butter
  • ½ c. flour
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray and line (with parchment paper on bottoms) a 9x5 loaf pan, or 4 mini loaves. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the wet ingredients (pears, eggs, oil, yogurt and vanilla). Mix to thoroughly combine. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, pecans, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt). Gradually sift the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir the batter just until all the ingredients are fully incorporated. Don't over mix, or you'll get large air bubbles in the bread. Mix the crumble topping, by combining the pecans, brown sugar, flour and butter together. Mixture will be crumbly.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared pan(s). Evenly top with the crumble topping.
  4. Bake at 350 for 1 hour (for 9x5 pan) until golden brown, and toothpick inserted comes out clean and free of crumbs. For four mini-loaves, bake for 35-40 minutes. Serve warm, and store leftovers in airtight container at room temperature.

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!

Enjoy!

  1. This recipe is a winner! Quick, delicious and beautiful!

  2. Oh my goodness, Erin! 🙂 I just love this bread! It looks amazing! Pinned & sharing.

  3. This sounds so delicious, I love quick breads! And I bet this one smells so good as it bakes!!!!

  4. Okay, I give up, I’m in love with your blog. This bread looks soooo good, I love simple baked pear things!! People always seem to be putting them in tarts in salads, which is good, but baked into muffins and things, so much better! Your photos are fantastic, I’m your newest follower 🙂

  5. This looks really good… a nice variation on the typical sweetbreads. 🙂

  6. I absolutely have to try this bread out this fall! It looks beautiful and uber yummy!! 🙂 Pinned!

  7. I made this and everyone loved it. I do wish the recipe had specified the type of pears (I used Bosc) and the size of the dice (I did a fairly fine dice). I also had to use sour cream instead of greek yogurt but it worked just fine. Love the crumble on top as well!

      So glad everyone enjoyed this Sandy! I actually used Bosc as well. I will edit my recipe to reflect the type of pears – thanks for the tip. Thanks so much for stopping by. ~Erin
