Last week my bananas were a little past their prime, and I had pears on the counter that just never ripened. The first thing that came to my mind was this banana pear bread! I never thought to combine the two before, but I am so glad I tried it this time. This bad fruit situation turned into a beautiful thing!
I will tell you, I added too many pears to this bread, so if you’re thinking it looks overloaded with pears…you are correct. I was a little too eager to rid my counter of the unripe pears and over did it a little. I wrote the recipe to include a lesser amount. We all still loved this bread, but it was almost more pear than bread! Oops.
The pears are not mushy, but not crunchy either. The texture was just right and we thought they were a delicious match for the sweet bananas and the warm, spicy cinnamon! And the topping? Please don’t skip the topping!! The brown sugar and cinnamon caramelize and make an irresistible crust on the top of the bread. I can’t wait to make this again!
