Spiced pear bread is a true indicator that our family’s favorite season is on the horizon. This tasty bread is a family favorite for a sweet breakfast treat on fall days. It also carries us nicely through the cool winters and helps warm up our tummies! We love to serve this homemade spiced pear bread right out of the oven with a nice cold glass of milk or with a cup of tea or coffee.
