Fresh Pear Loaf

Fresh Pear Bread Recipe

Ingredients

3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1-2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups finely chopped peeled ripe pears (about 4-5 medium)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

Grease and line two loaf pans with parchment paper. Grease the parchment.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla; mix well. Add the chopped pears and fold them in gently.

In a second mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Fold in the walnuts.

Stir into the egg mixture just until moistened. (batter will be thick).

Divide the mixture evenly between the loaf pans. I use a scale to make sure they have even amounts.


Bake 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans using the parchment to wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves.
