Pear Bread

This wonderful bread made with sugar pears, unbleached all-purpose, whole wheat and rye flours, is based on Sandra Avital's (Le Pétrin) recipe for "Pain Rustique aux Poires".

(Yes, I made this by hand. Yes, the dough is exceedingly sloppy....)

The pear bread from Clayton's Breads of France. I posted on it back at my very beginning on TFL. It is delicious and not difficult to work with. Yours looks lovely. c

Is this the one? Clayton's Breads of France - Piquenchagne - Pear Bread (thefreshloaf.com/node/10172/clayton039s-breads-france-piquenchagne-pear-bread) If so, you're right, it's likely we would like it.


Alas, I do not have that book, trailrunner. I'm guessing from looking at the bread in the photo there that it is made with white flour only? (all-purpose? bread?)

Yes I would have to look it up but it is with only white I believe. It has been over a year since I made it. I would be glad to send the recipe toyou.c

That's a kind offer, C. But I'm sure I can get the book out of the library.


Are there other recipes in that book that you recommend?
