DIRECTIONS

  • Peel and core the pears. Cut them into quarter pieces.
  • Puree the quarters in a food processor to get 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups.
  • Center a rack in the middle of an oven preheated to 325°F.
  • Lightly grease and flour a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan.
  • Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt into a small bowl; set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed, combine the butter and sugars until well blended, about 2 minutes.
  • Reduce the speed to low and add the eggs and vanilla extract, mixing for about 1 minute.
  • Add the pear puree and yogurt. Mix until combined.
  • Stop mixing. Sprinkle the ground coffee and cardamom over the batter, then scatter the flour over the top.
  • Resume at low speed or pulse a few times, and mix until just combined.
  • Transfer the batter to the loaf pan and bake for about 1 hour 5 mins., or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then invert onto a wire rack and turn right side up on the rack to cool completely.
