I made muffins (24--baked at 350 for 18 minutes, started checking at 15), which just came out of the oven & cooled to eating temp. They are very tasty and moist--and a very forgiving recipe. I had 4 small pears (with bad spots to cut out) and 1 banana, and only plain yogurt. I used a mix of white and wheat flour & fresh nutmeg. Thanks for sharing!
This is a lovely light cake. Reviews said it was really moist I was worried about it being heavy but it wasn't and not too moist either - just right. I doubled the recipe and used four bananas, only 2 ripe pears and I also only added 3/4 c of both sugars. Doubling made a large loaf plus 12 large cupcakes. This recipe is a real 'keeper'.
This bread is delicious and moist and has become a favourite with my family and friends. The riper the fruit, the sweeter the cake so you can easily cut down the sugar quantity without issue. This is the first cake I have made from stratch and it is dead easy and absolutely delicioous.
Great recipe. I had lots of bananas to use up so I ended up doubling it, but only used 3 pears. I also was out of butter so used vegetable oil. Can't wait to try it again with butter! Made 24 muffins, and a good sized loaf of bread with the doubled recipe. Thanks for sharing!
I made 2 loaves using gluten free flour -- as two of our family cannot eat regular flour. It turned out lovely!
Very good recipe! 1) had pears and bananas to use up 2)went online found this recipe 3) Doubled recipe used only 1 stick of (Kate's) Butter. 4) Baked 1 regular (60 min), and 3
very Moist and delicious. Added chopped walnuts.
this bread was fantastic! thanks for the recipe. vegan substitutions worked well too (egg replacer and yogurt). very moist and delicious!
The pears I used are from our farm and they are very hard and crunchy. I grated them instead of chopping and mashing. I was disappointed in the lack of flavor of the bread. Perhaps it was the crunchy pears, but I tasted banana and not much else. It was very moist. I don't plan to use this recipe again.
I'd never have thought that banana and pear would go well together but they did - its so lovely and moist! I had to cook the pears up before I mashed them as the pears from our garden are very hard and I found that one banana was fine. Thanks for the good recipe!
