It turns out I have a bunch of canned fruit. And I don't necessarily enjoy popping open a can and going at it. So, I've been trying to find ways to use the fruit. Here's one of the ways that's turned out darn good:
2 C sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 C vegetable oil
3 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp lemon zest/peel
1 1/2 C diced pears, drained
1 C blueberries
Preheat oven to 350
Grease and flour bread pans (this recipe makes the equivalent of 2 8x4 inch loaves).
Beat together all wet ingredients.
Add in dry ingredients until combined.
Fold in pears and blueberries.
Pour or scoop batter into prepared pans.
Bake at 350 until a tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Note: For 8x4 loaves it's about an hour. For mini loaves I tend to get it done in just under 35 minutes. Muffins take 18-25.
