Pear and walnut Bread

You can put anything onto bread. This one is for Autumn.

- Make some dough. I have a bread maker but it is easy enough to do by hand. I use about two cupfuls of flour to make a smallish loaf for two people.

- Slice a pear and gently fry the slices in a frying pan with some butter and a little oil, until golden brownish on one side. When I made pear bread the first time I didn’t cook the pear first and the bread came out more wet from the pear juice, but either way will work.

- Once the dough is ready roll it out onto a floured board until about half an inch thick.

- Lay the pear slices all over the dough.

- Roll some walnuts in a little oil (I use the left over oil from the pear in the frying pan) and scatter on top.

- Run over a little olive oil and sprinkle with soft brown sugar.

- Pop into a hot oven, 200, 220 centigrade, something hot enough to toast the walnuts and char the edges a little.

- Ten minutes later, onece the bread is crispy you’re done.

Makes a lovely accompanyment to the slightly sweetness of a plain pumpkin soup.

I love the Autumn.
