How to Sell Your House…

So I meant to post this yesterday…but I had some car trouble and never made it home last night.

Thanks Mom and Dad!!!  So, here is the other bread recipe I told you about.  Enjoy!



Or at least make it smell REALLY, REALLY, REALLY good…


Bake Bread!


More specifically…make Spiced Pear Bread.




If you happen to have an abundance of ripe pears at your house, feel free to use fresh pears.  However, since I didn’t make it to Costco this week, I chose to go with the economical canned pears.

I made a huge mess of my kitchen pulling together this bread, but it was totally worth it!




With one recipe, I filled 4 mini loaf pans and 2 fun leaf pans.

I paid close attention not to over-stir my batter and it paid off.  The bread popped up beautifully.  This bread combines cinnamon with cloves that will have your house smelling festive immediately.




And I super greased my leaf pans with spray, so they easily came out AND actually look like leaves.  How very fall!

This bread is different, easy, and a total fall favorite.  I love the way it smells, and it tastes even better!

I can’t promise that it will help you sell your house.  But, I can promise that you will make new friends when your neighbors smell the spicy aroma coming from your home or you show up at their doors with a mini loaf of homemade bread.






Spiced Bear Bread

From Taste of Home



    3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

    1 cup sugar

    3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1 teaspoon baking powder

    1 teaspoon ground cloves

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    3 eggs

    3 cans (15-1/4 ounces each) sliced pears, drained and mashed

    1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

    1/4 cup canola oil



      In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, pears, applesauce and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

      Pour into four 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

      Yield: 4 mini loaves (6 slices each).

        • I am always a bread baking fool : ) Quick bread might just be my favorite thing to break. Just found a new pumpkin recipe that I can’t wait to try!
