I took a little break yesterday on account of oral surgery, but I’m back with a yummy recipe for Pear Bread.
1 1/2 Cup all purpose flour
1 Cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 large egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cup grated peeled ripe pears with juice
Step 1: Preheat oven 350° and grease 9x5in loaf pan.
Step 2: Whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg thoroughly in a bowl
Step 3: In a large bowl whisk together the egg, oil, vanilla, lemon zest, lemon juice and grated pear.
Step 4: Add flour mixture and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Scrape batter into pan and spread evenly. Bake until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean about 75-80 minutes. Let cool in pan 5-10 minutes before unmolding to cool completely on the rack.
Yields 10-12 servings
