This bread is richly flavored and a nice twist to the traditional banana bread. Be sure to use overripe bananas. If mine are going bad, I often place them in the freezer with the skin on and thaw them when needed. Caramelizing the pears is an extra step, but it adds a nice depth of flavor to this bread. The glaze is optional, but it makes for a lovely presentation and autumn flavor.
