My friend was preparing pear butter from scratch and given me two jars. I kept them in the pantry and spotted them a week ago, so I started to think about how to make the best out of them. Since I tend to have several espressos during the morning, I decided to make Pear Butter Cream Cheese Bread to pack two slices for work and have them during the morning. I really must do something about my eating habits. Breakfast should become my routine.

What is the difference between pear butter and pear jam?

Pear jam is a sweeter, thicker, chunkier spread made with sugar and pectin. Pear butter is pureed fruit and some spices cooked down to thicken.

 

How long does pear butter last in the fridge?

Once refrigerated, pear butter will last for a week if you don’t can it in glass jars.

 

Can pears be frozen for later use?

Yes. Pack pears into freezer safe bags. Remove excess air. Freeze. These slices will remain good for 6 or more months.

However, I recommend you make pear butter or jam. Another great idea is fruit leathers. Kids adore them!

 

 

 

This pear cheesecake bread is not overpowered with sugar. It lasts for five days so we both have our versions of cheese bread breakfast. My son adds extra pear butter and chocolate crumbs to have a slice with a glass of milk and I pack my share to go. This is his version:

Since the days are getting warmer, I keep the bread in the fridge, tightly wrapped; that way it stays fresh for several days. This pear butter cream cheese bread may get dry in the fridge if not wrapped properly.

To make this bread more attractive, I suggest you add cream cheese a bit different way. Since this bread recipe really looks nice, you may serve a slice with afternoon coffee to have a dessert. Just roll your cream cheese in plastic wrap to get the same length as the bread pan and place it on the top of the raw batter:

When you cut the slices, it looks nice, don’t you think?

Cream cheese may be too soft to roll it. If this happens to you, freeze cream cheese for a while so you can handle it without any problem!
