More like cake than bread, this 'plummy' creation is moist and delicious. The pears and spices combine so tastily that I only bake this when there are other people around so I won't eat both loaves all by myself.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and generously grease two large loaf pans. (The long pieces of pear make the loaves more susceptible to sticking in the pans and falling apart, so make sure you grease the pans generously.)
  2. In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, vegetable oil, molasses, and eggs. Mix in salt, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and allspice. Stir the pear slices in, coating them evenly. Stir in the flour. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pans
  3. Bake for 50 to 65 minutes. Allow loaves to cool in pan about ten minutes before removing them and placing them on a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

The most delicious, moist gingerbread ever. Just know that I think the author meant 3 eggs instead of 3 Tbs. of eggs. Excellent recipe.

My husband and I LOVE this recipe and it shrinks/grows well. I have made it in 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8 loaf batches, and every time it is delicious. I have subbed honey for molasses in the past and it worked well. I have also added MORE spice than the recipe calls for and that really bumped it up. Adding 2x the spice called for, a little nutmeg, and serving with mulled wine or hot apple cider did my guests in at a recent "Christmas in July" party. Oh yeah, I used pastry flour and that was pretty cool too. Well done JAWANDMEE!

This was a very easy quick bread to make. I used a variety of pears and put a mixture of brown sugar and raw sugar on top of the bread. I also made mini loafs which are nice to give to the neighbors. They also freeze well. I will certainly make these again.
