The Truth Behind My Pear Loaf Bread.
I baked it Sunday with intentions to photo it on Monday. Well I got off work later than expected and I was exhausted so by the time I got done with family things, I had limited light. I tried to photo shoot this in my kitchen, hoping it wouldn’t suck but those photos all bombed. Meanwhile my toddler is eating away at this bread.
Tuesday rolls around and I have about 30 minutes of somewhat decent light left in the day, so I made the snap decision to throw something together so I could photograph it. And at this point, the bread is almost gone. But that’s ok- a couple of slices is all I needed and that just means I will have to make it again so I can capture the loaf as a whole and get the beautiful sugared pears on top. 🙂
Pear Loaf Bread:
1 cup peeled pears
1/2 cup brown sugar, divided
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Line your loaf pan with buttered/greased parchment paper
Toss the sliced pears with the cinnamon and 1/4 cup of the brown sugar
In a mixer, cream the butter and add the remaining sugar. Mix and the vanilla and milk.
Gently add the rest of the dry ingredients. Pour half the batter into the loaf pan, the add half of the pear mixture and then repeat with the adding the second layer of batter, then pears.
Bake for 60-70 min or until the middle comes out clean on a toothpick.
