  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind
  • Ad
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder

  • 2/3 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grate pears. Beat eggs in mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Add oil, sugar, lemon rind, vanilla and grated pear; mix well. Sift dry ingredients together.

Instead of the oil, you could use pureed pears, baby sauce (Gerber) pears. I eliminate all I can when baking and this was one way to move out oil. I do this with carrot bread too.
