  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the bottom and ½ inch up the sides of one 8x4x2-inch or two 5- ¾x3x1- ¾-inch loaf pans or line with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl stir together flours, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, salt, and nutmeg. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine shredded pear, sugar, oil, egg, and syrup. Add pear mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until moistened (batter will be lumpy). Fold in chopped pear. Spoon batter into prepared pan(s).
  3. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes for the 8x4x2-inch pan or 35 to 40 minutes for 5- ¾x3x 1- ¾-inch pans or until a toothpick inserted near center(s) comes out clean. Cool in pan(s) on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan(s). Cool completely on wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing.
