Whole Wheat Pear Bread


This is a reprint from last year.  Since I just received a bag of pears from one of our daughter’s teachers, I thought it time to repost it.  I adapted this recipe from one I found on the internet with plain flour.  It is yummy!

Whole Wheat Pear Bread

2 sticks of butter, softened

2 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cup sugar
4 eggs

1 T. vanilla
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (if freshly milled use half spring white and half hard red)

1 ½ cup all purpose flour
1 heaping teaspoon salt
2 heaping teaspoons baking powder
1 heaping teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
½ cup sour cream

2 cup peeled and diced pears

Cream butter, cream cheese, sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla. In another bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda & nutmeg. Add alternately to creamed mixture with sour cream; fold in pears. Bake in a 350° oven until a toothpick comes out clean and top is golden brown. For mini loaves or muffins approx 15 minutes, for loaf pans or 9x13, 45 min-1hour.  Enjoy!
