Favorite Fall Treat - Pear Bread

Pear Bread

One of the things we love in the fall is pears but they  tend to rot within days of buying them. Oh, and they cost over a dollar each. Even with the these problems I still can't resist buying them!
In my search for a good use for the pears I have I came across this recipe. Zilla, Mega and I love it! 
Next time you have a few pears sitting around why not give it a shot?

p.s. thick pieces are better to stop the slices from falling apart.

Pear Bread

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 eggs
3 1/2 cups pears - peeled, cored and chopped
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 8x4 inch loaf pans.
In large mixing bowl combine sugar and eggs, beat well. Stir in pears and vanilla. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir dry ingredients into the pear mixture; mix well. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans
Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a loaf comes out clean. Allow loaves to cool in pans for 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely. (I like it hot but be careful because the pear chunks are scalding hot!)
