Pear Bread

This recipe makes up two of the most beautiful, delicious quick breads.  These were are treats at the senior center last Tuesday.  More pears from my friends tree.

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

In a bowl, combine eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla; mix well.  Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; stir into the egg mixture just until moistened.  Toss pears with lemon juice.  Stir pear and walnuts into batter (batter will be thick).

Spoon into two greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
