The Pear & Meyer Lemon Bread is a unique baked good that incorporates whole pears into its recipe. That's right, entire pears are baked right in the middle of the loaf, creating a delicious moist center that would whet anyone's appetite. Poached in sugar water first, 3 Bosc pears are placed in one's favorite quick bread batter for an added bit of taste and texture.
Conceived by Deanna Segrave-Daly of Healthy Aperture, the Pear & Meyer Lemon Bread recipe was inspired by a fruit display at Trader's Joe and an article in the Jan/Feb issue of Cooking Light. A fun dish for cold winter days, it introduces a delicious slice of summer for those who have been suffering from the onslaught of polar vortexes this year. Comfort food has never been more creative.
