Banana Pear Bread


I liked this more than I thought I would. I had bananas on hand and some canned pears that were going nowhere and wanted to see if they would play well together.

Banana Pear Bread

2 overripe bananas
4 canned pear halves, drained
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350.
Mash bananas and pears together and add sugars, oil, eggs and vanilla.
Mix well.
Add dry ingredients and blend well.
Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan.
Bake for about 1 1/2 hours until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

It sounds and looks good. I have everything but the pears.

Maybe I should try it.
Have a nice weekend.

when my bannas go spotty I frreze them.. I swear when frozen they taste sweeter .. makes them funky when thawed but easier to beat/mash/mix/puleverize

Hi Cassie! How's things, hon? Been missing you.

mr coffee--I do likewise, but have learned to peel those suckers FIRST! It's doable without, but far messier.
