Pear Bread

I love fall.  The sound of early fallen leaves making their journey down the street.  Pears are one of my many favorite fruits and the smell of this bread baking added to my peaceful afternoon.

Pear Bread

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup milk
6 oz Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 cup pears, diced

Cream together butter and sugar.  Add in eggs, vanilla, milk and yogurt.  Stir in dry ingredients.  Gently fold in diced pears.

Put in a greased bread pan.  Bake at 350° for 70 minutes.

The mixture will seem really thick but remember as the pears heat up, they will release their juice into the batter.
