I had some pears in the fridge that I hadn’t eaten and some raspberries in the freezer so I thought I’d try a pear and raspberry bread.  I wanted to try something that didn’t use wheat flour or butter and I found this pear bread recipe on the US Pear Bureau Northwest website.  I’ve modified it for the Thermomix and I’ve replaced some of the rice flour with almonds and I’ve replaced the walnuts with raspberries. The result is something that’s not too sweet and a nice treat.
