Pear and Walnut Loaf …

Pear and Walnut Loaf


This is a quick and easy recipe you can whip up if friends call to say they’re coming for morning tea. Deliciously moist, I just love the combination of the nutty flavour from the walnuts and the sweetness from the pears. Just keep a tin of pears in the pantry and you should have everything else.


For this recipe, I used the Coles Australian Pear Slices, which I drained and chopped into small pieces. I was really happy with the quality, as the pears were nice and firm and not mushy. Enjoy!
