A very sweet and moist banana-bread type bread, rather than a dry and dense sandwich-loaf type bread.

Recipe Ingredients for Citrus Pear Walnut Bread

2 pears, chilled (approx. 1 1/2 cups when grated)
1 cup walnuts, ground
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
3 tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. lemon zest
2 tbsp. lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Citrus Pear Walnut Bread

  1. Place oven rack so that it's in the lower third of the oven, but not on the bottom most rung. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9x5 inch glass loaf pan with margarine. (If all you have is an aluminum pan, increase the preheated oven temperature to 350 degrees...and note that cooking time may differ.)

  2. Peel the pears and then grate them. (2 pears should yield approx. 1 1/2 cups when grated.) Set aside. In a small food processor, grind the walnuts until they resemble crumbs (about 15 seconds). Set aside.

  3. In a bowl, stir together all dry ingredients plus the ground walnuts.

  4. In a separate (small) bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients until the oil is incorporated and the mixture is smooth. Add the pears and whisk a few seconds more. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until combined.

  5. Scrape batter evenly into loaf pan. Bake for 40 minutes. (Or until toothpick comes out clean.)

  6. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning out bread. Then let it cool completely on a rack before cutting.
