To me this is a perfect breakfast bread: it's moist and flavorful, a bit sweet but only just, and with the whole grains, pears and honey you can still feel like you are starting the day out right). See blog post at —sarabclever

What You'll Need
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup neutral oil
  • 1/2 cup +2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 pear, peeled and cut into a 1/2 inch dice
  1. Preheat the oven to 325. Butter a 9 inch loaf pan and line the base with parchment paper.
  2. Stir the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Whisk the wet ingredients together in a large bowl and add the dry ingredient mixture in 2 additions, stirring until just barely combined. Fold in the diced pear
  3. Scrape into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. Tent with foil if it starts to brown too quickly (honey-sweetened dishes tend to do this).
  4. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, and then finish cooling on a rack.

My love of cooking grew out of my love of eating and travel. Now I'm working full time with a preschooler and toddler, so it's a bit of a juggle to say the least, especially as the "picky phase" emerges (I hope it's a phase, anyway). I've lived an travelled abroad a lot but now am in the Boston area, and cooking is my way to travel these days! My sisters and I are spread out across the US but started a blog together where we post recipes and talk about food. Mostly the kind that satisfies our sweet tooth.
