MAYBE you need to run out and get pears. But if you don’t have pears, you could always swap them out for apples instead! Whatever works. As long as you take a chance on this  quick bread recipe, it will be worth it. 

Fresh pear recipes always work for family gatherings – at least they do in my house. We eat them for breakfast, nibble on them around noon, and then whip them out for dessert after dinner. They work all day long!
