(Amazing) Gluten-Free Almond-Pear Bread: Submitted by: Melanie Bolke | Date Added: 20 Aug 2014
Listed in: Baked Goods

3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar (I used Cane Sugar)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup canola oil (could substitute safflower oil instead)
3 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour (I used Namaste brand from Costco)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
4 cups peeled and chopped pears (~4 pears)
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup dried cranberries (optional)
Pat of softened butter to “grease” the loaf pan(s)

Cooking Instructions

--In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla and mix well. I simply used a fork, so no need to use an electric mixer.
--In a small mixing bowl, thoroughly combine the remaining dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt).
--Slowly transfer contents of the small bowl into the mixture in the large bowl, gently stirring and not over-mixing. The batter will become fairly thick.
--Rinse out the small bowl you used for the dry ingredients and use it to toss the pears with the lemon juice (the citric acid in the lemon juice helps to keep the pears from turning brown and mushy).
--Add the pear mixture, sliced almonds, and optional cranberries to the batter.  It will be thick, but just be patient and fold in the ingredients without overworking the mix.
--This recipe makes enough for two 9×5 loaves. I only have one loaf pan (it’s glass), so I refrigerated the remainder overnight and make my second loaf the next morning.
--Using wax paper, “grease” your baking pan with the softened butter. You can dust it with a little flour if you’d like to keep the loaf from sticking to the pan.
--Bake in a 350F oven for ~60 mins. I found that the center was still a little doughy, so I baked it for another 15 mins, but with a foil tent on top to prevent the top from burning. This tip seemed to do the trick, and a toothpick inserted in the center came out perfectly clean.
--Cool for ~10 mins and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
--Slice up and serve anyway you’d like!
