DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350° F (175 C in my house).
  • Lightly grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan or two 9″x 5″loaf pans. I use my silicon fluted tube pan and don't grease or flour.
  • Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Scoop out about 1/4 cup of this mixture and combine it with nuts to coat.
  • Stir back into the flour mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, combine butter, eggs, sugar, pears, and vanilla.
  • Add the pear mixture to the flour mixture, stirring just until flour disappears and batter is evenly moistened. Don't overdo it, you want everything JUST moistened.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan(s). Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until bread is browned and firm on top. A pick inserted into the center should come out clean.
  • Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Then, remove from pan and place top side up on a plate or wire rack to cool completely.
