“The delicate flavor of fresh pears and pecans dance enchantingly in this lovely summer loaf. Freezes well if double wrapped. Delicious and easy.”

I substituted all of the oil for 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce and it was FANTASTIC. This bread is moist and tasty.

This is a delicious bread--the only change I made was to use 1/2 c. brown sugar in place of 1/2 c. white sugar, and I left out the nuts but will add them next time. I will use this recipe as a nice change from zucchini bread.

Delicious! I replaced half the oil with applesauce, half the white sugar with brown, and half the flour with whole wheat flour. I also doubled the vanilla.
