However it just so happened that I also had in my fruit bowl two spotty, over-ripe pears. I looked at the banana and the pears and the idea hit me: might there be such a thing as banana pear bread? I decided to find out.
Now, this was not the first time I'd dabbled in pear pastry. A few months back I also found myself with a surplus of ripening pears,
Banana Pear Bread
1 cup sugar
a dash of cinnamon
1/2 cup shortening, butter, or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan with shortening, butter or margarine (Not oil spray) .
Peel and thinly slice the banana and pears.
Tom gave it a rousing thumbs up.
But if you're willing to travel off the egg-beaten path flavor-wise, then I'd recommend giving banana pear bead a try if for no other reason than that this loaf came out super, melt-in-your-mouth moist and tasty. Not exactly banana bread-style tasty, but tasty unto itself.
