  • Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Place raspberries in a separate bowl. Spoon 2 tablespoons flour mixture over raspberries and toss until coated.

  • Combine pears, brown sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into pear mixture until batter is just combined. Gently fold raspberries and pecans into batter. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours. Cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing loaf to cool completely on a wire rack.

Cook's Note:

At high altitude, bump back the oven temperature 10 to 15 degrees, and add 1 additional tablespoon all-purpose flour.

I would run the raspberries through a sieve the next time as the seeds are a huge bother and get stuck in my teeth or just use cranberries. The flavor was great. Read More

Basically, I followed the recipe as stated. I noticed at once the lack of regular sugar and should have followed my instinct to add some type of extra sweetner. I will possibly try to improve next time. Also, I knew that it would make 2 loaf pans. So I am going to add some cinnamon/sugar to this batch of loafs once sliced. Read More
