The world seems truly wonderful if you are lazing around on a cold winter evening beside a slice of delicious pear bread while sipping on some piping hot coffee. Being my family favorite, I often treat my little one to a generous slice of this yummy pear bread which, by the way, is a great way to incorporate tremendously nutritious fruit and nuts in to your kid’s meal platter!
The diverse textures of this cake will create a food party in your mouth with each bite. So, expect to savor some crunch from walnuts, pulpy pear bits, subtle flavors from cinnamon, vanilla and lemon, on your palette besides the soft cakey sponge… Sounds incredible, isn’t it?
So, wait no more just gather the kitchen essentials and enjoy this easy preparation in less than an hour’s time!!
Preheat the oven to 225 degrees C and prepare a loaf tin by lightly greasing it with butter inside the entire tin. Break the eggs in to a large bowl. Add the powdered sugar, oil, vanilla to eggs and whisk everything until well combined and fluffy in consistency. In another bowl, add flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder, baking soda, salt and mix everything until well blended.
In yet another bowl, toss the chopped pear with walnuts and lemon juice nicely. Add the flour mixture in to the egg mixture and whisk it well until combined. Stir the pear mixture in to the cake batter and mix everything again until the mixture is well combined.
Transfer the batter in to the prepared baking dish and bake it at 200 degrees C for about 30 to 35 minutes or until the cake is cooked at the center. Slice and enjoy!
You may also choose to not peel the pears and bake them along with the pear skin. You may also grate the pears if you do not prefer chunky bits of pear in your cake slice. Instead of greasing the baking dish you may alternatively line the baking dish with a butter paper or an aluminum foil. You may also use an electric blender to blend the ingredients instead of using a ladle or a spatula. Move your hand or gadget blade in one direction only while mixing the ingredients. Make sure there are no egg shells present along with the broken whole eggs. You may replace vanilla extract with vanilla essence a well in similar quantities. If required, you may use low fat milk instead of full fat milk. Do not over mix the cake batter.
