Cinnamon Pear Loaf Recipe

Cinnamon Pear Loaf Recipe

Pears are, in my opinion, one of the most underrated fall fruits. Sweet and juicy, they are great one their own, paired (see what I did there) with some good cheese or you can use them to elevate your baking. I find pears to be more flavourful than apples when it comes to baking so they an easily take centre stage without much fuss. This easy to make loaf is really just a simple cinnamon loaf topped with pears and brown sugar to give the pears a lovely caramelized look and taste.  As the pears cook a few pieces make their way down into the loaf so you get some nice bites of pear not just on top but inside as well.
