- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tblsp ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup applesauce
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 2 cups peeled shredded pears (I used two large pears)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- dash of nutmeg (still not sure why I did that...)
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Make a well in the center of the bowl.
In a separate bowl combine the oil, eggs, sugar, grated pears, and vanilla. Blend well. Add to well of dry ingredients. Stir until just moistened.
Spoon batter into 2 greased and floured 8x5x3 inch loaf pans. (I actually used one loaf pan, unsure of the exact size, and two mini loaf pans)
Bake in a preheated 325 degree F (165 degrees C) oven for one hour and 15 minutes. Cool on wire rack before removing from the loaf pans. (time varies, watch closely after about an hour)
