Pear Bread

Doesn't this look so good to have with your coffee in the morning?

Pear Bread

3 C. flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 T. cinnamon
3/4 C. vegetable oil
3 eggs
2 C. sugar
2 C. pears, peeled and chopped finely
1 C. pecans, chopped
2 tsp. vanilla

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt & cinnamon.  Make a well in the center of the bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine the oil, eggs, sugar, pears, pecans, & vanilla.  Blend well.  Add into the well of dry ingredients.  Stir until just moistened.  Spoon batter into 2 greased loaf pans.  (You can use use mini loaves and get more.)

Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes (original recipe said for 1 hr. and 15 minutes, but my gas oven bakes these in 40-50 minutes so you might have to adjust this depending on your oven.)  Cool before removing from pans.  This is so good served with butter.  A very moist bread!

(I got this recipe from a friend on my Christmas Yahoo group.  Thank you, Sandy, I have been making and enjoying this recipe for several years now!!)

Here is the flour mixture -

All combine and poured in the loaf pans -

All baked and removed from the pans -

This baking has tired Lucy and she fell asleep right on the arm of the couch and not in her favorite chair (of which she has 3 now!!) -

Your bread looks DELICIOUS. I could sure use a piece right now. And it would go great with my Warm Caramel Creme Apple Punch. Hey girl we need to have a party together. We would rock.
