“A nice change from regular banana bread--it's super moist and the pears really boost the flavor. I developed this by combining the best elements of banana and fruit bread recipes. As one of the reviewers discovered, this recipe doesn't work with hard pears--they have to be soft so they can be mashed in with the bananas to form a puree. Also, this can be cooked more quickly in a muffin tin (about 20 minutes).”
