How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 9x5-inch loaf pan; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs, pear nectar and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add shredded pear; continue beating until combined. Reduce speed to low. Add all remaining bread ingredients except walnuts; beat just until blended. Stir in walnuts.

  3. STEP 3

    Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine all glaze ingredients in small bowl. Drizzle over loaf.

Tip #1

For gift giving, make 3 mini loaves instead of one large loaf. Prepare batter as directed above. Spoon into 3 greased (5 1/2x3-inch) mini loaf pans or aluminum foil pans. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Glaze mini loaves as directed above.
