Last year I made pearsauce (just posted it too). I used it in the same way as applesauce in baking, and ended up with a new favorite quickbread recipe. Whole wheat pastry flour gives a little bit of nuttiness to the loaf, and dusting the top with turbinado sugar gives a shiny, crackly finish that is slightly caramelized...my favorite part. - apartmentcooker
Go ahead and pop this recipe into your fall favorites file. The aroma while baking will wake the deepest of sleepers. This loaf is incredibly moist and the subtle spices work perfectly with the pears. I didn't have enough pears to make pear sauce, so cheated and bought some organic pear baby food. Since the pear sauce did have some spices in it (and the baby food did not), I went a little heavier on the spices to compensate. This one is probably a good keeper -- though mine was gone within a few hours! - sticksnscones —sticksnscones
all purpose flour, plus 2 tbsp for the dusting the pears
I always carry three kinds of hot sauce in my purse. I have a soft spot for making people their favorite dessert, especially if it's pie. My first cookbook, The Fearless Baker, is out on October 24, 2017.
