Spiced Honey Pear Bread

I saw this over at Paint Chips and Frying Pans and wanted to try it since I had a few pears that needed used!

I tweaked the recipe a little based on what was in my cabinet & how long it took for my bread to cook... (and based on how much I love cinnamon!!).

1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup applesauce (equal to 2 pureed apples in case you're like me and don't have applesauce!)
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 peeled, chopped pears

Preheat the oven to 350*.  Mix everything but the pears.  Add the pears when everything is well blended.  Bake for 1 hour.  Take it out and cool on a cooling rack!  Be prepared for a yummy smelling kitchen!!!! :) :) :)
