PPQ: Pear-Ginger Quick Bread

This week's Project Pastry Queen recipe is another one of those that I've been wanting to make for quite some time.  I love the pear-ginger combination, and quick breads are always a nice treat to have around.  This bread is studded with fresh pears and ginger, and tastes light and fresh thanks to the addition of both lemon and orange zest.  It smelled so good as it baked, and I couldn't stop myself from eating two slices in about five minutes. 

Simple and straightforward, this bread is in the oven within ten minutes, and in about an hour you'll have a wonderfully sweet, fragrant, and delicious breakfast or snack.  Thanks to Aliza of Baker by Night for choosing this yummy recipe.  She has the full recipe posted on her blog.

Next week:  Emergency Fruit Crostatas

This looks great. I've been looking for a wintry quick bread, and this certainly fits the bill!
