Pear Banana Bread

Pear Banana Bread created by emdee-o

A nice change from regular banana bread--it's super moist and the pears really boost the flavor. I developed this by combining the best elements of banana and fruit bread recipes. As one of the reviewers discovered, this recipe doesn't work with hard pears--they have to be soft so they can be mashed in with the bananas to form a puree. Also, this can be cooked more quickly in a muffin tin (about 20 minutes).

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mash bananas and pears in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients until creamed together.
  • Stir in the fruit mixture.
  • Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan.
  • Bake for an hour and half.
  • Let cool for at least 10 minutes so it doesn't fall apart (it solidifies more with time).

    I increase this by half to get a generous loaf. 3 cups of flour, 3 pears and bananas mashed, 1 extra banana slice and mixed thru the batter. 3 eggs, 1/3 cup yogurt, 3/4 butter (but I forgot the butter completely once and it turned out surprisingly well), 3 eggs, 1.5 tsp vanilla plus the spices. Even increasing the volume of the batter this is always comes in less than 75 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Delicious flavor, was looking for a recipe to use over ripe bananas and pears and this was just the thing.

    It is lovely really, it seemed totally ready in about 1 hour and 15 minutes, so perhaps change the recipe to say "...or until done". It was easy to make, I used 1/2 oat flour in the recipe, also I used vegan sour cream instead of the yogourt as I am lactose intolerant, and so I added a bit more vanilla. I also used 3 pears instead of 2. Delicious!

    Made this bread two days ago. Really moist and flavorful. Cooking time for me was just under 70 minutes. Will make it again (many times I'm sure). Thank you for the recipe.
