Spiced Pear Quick Bread
Anyone else ready for some fall baking? After a great summer season filled with peaches, blackberries, raspberries, and more, I am quite excited for some fall flavors like apple, pumpkin, sweet potato, cranberry, and pear. To start off the season, I decided to make a spiced pear quick bread that is based on the recipe I use for blackberry bread. Instead of blackberries, I combined fresh pears and warm spices such as cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, etc. If you don’t have some of these spices, that is perfectly fine. The most important ones are cinnamon and ginger, you can make do without some of the others if need be!
This bread is great topped with a bit of butter and honey for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert!
