Pear Honey Swirl Bread


I hope this week finds you all healthy and well, both physically and emotionally. I’ve settled into a routine of morning CorePower or other workout videos, short outdoor runs and days spent on zoom. Brandon works at a hospital, so he’s like a relic from the long ago; his daily routine has barely changed, with the exception of his gym closure.


The stark changes in our world has impacted all part of our lives, right down to this blog. Tiff couldn’t find any yeast last week, and that – combined with the current stress of her job, highlighted in these complex times – meant that we needed to take a break from posting last week. Hats off to her, though, since she was valiantly trying to get creative with her starter to develop something to post. When that wasn’t working out, we agreed that this blog is supposed to be fun – and when it’s not, well, perhaps we can skip a week.


For me, one advantage to being at home so much is that it’s given me lots of extra time to cook and bake during the week – in-between meetings I’ve been able to knead some dough, pop something into the oven, or just get a few things started. Like lots of other folks, I’ve been craving foods I find comforting.


A few things we’ve eaten have included:


And of course, this Pear Honey Swirl Bread. Think Cinnamon Raisin Bread, but with a sweeter interior. It’s fruity, sweet, and a little spicy and earthy (thanks to the cardamom). The bread is delicious toasted with butter (of course), but also great with almond butter spread on top. It’s a simple bake (if you can find yeast!) and – speaking from experience ¬†– is perfect to put together in-between web meetings.
