Pear Bread

Pear Bread

I cherish my weekends.  I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love sipping coffee, reading the paper, and doing whatever the heck I want.  In my opinion, weekends are way too short.  I never seem to finish all the things that I set out to do.  Well, early this morning I decided to make a loaf of Pear Bread to enjoy with my cup of coffee.  My Pear Bread is made with my home made Pear Sauce that I made a couple of days ago.  This bread is easy to make, has a light texture with a hint of lemon and a sweet pear flavor.  If you don’t have pear sauce, don’t despair!  Use some good quality applesauce instead.  Enjoy!  Tessa

Ingredients:

  • 2 c. flour
  • 3/4 c. baking sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. pear sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 c. canola oil
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.  Grab a 4″ X 8″ baking pan and grease well with non stick cooking spray.  In a medium sized bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the pear sauce, eggs, oil, and lemon zest.  Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Mix until moistened.  Do not over mix.  Add the mixture to the baking pan and bake for 1 hour or until done.  Cool on a wire rack then remove the loaf from the pan.  Makes one fabulous loaf.

      Hi Beti! Thank you! Next time I make this I was thinking that I might add some blackberries to the batter.

      Hi there! Without a doubt the bread would do well with nuts on the top. It’s a simple recipe, make it the way I have it or mix it up with other fruit, nuts or maybe put even cook the batter in little muffin tins. I am already thinking other variations. Thanks for stopping by!

      Hi Tia! This bread is not as dense as banana bread. It has the consistency of a muffin. Thanks for stopping by!
