Oats, walnuts and nuggets of chopped pear give this loaf a toothsome heartiness, while buttermilk keeps it moist and tender.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups peeled and chopped pear
  • 3/4 cup regular rolled oats, divided
  • 3/4 cup toasted walnuts, chopped*

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees . Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of two 8x4x2-inch loaf pans; set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, ground ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and cardamom; make a well in the center. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, milk, eggs, butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Stir in pear, 1/2 cup of the oats and the nuts. Divide batter between prepared pans. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup oats.
  3. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted near centers comes out clean. (If necessary to prevent overbrowning, cover bread loosely with foil for the last 15 minutes of baking.) Cool in pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pans. Cool completely.

Tip

  • *To toast walnuts spread on a sheet pan and bake at 350 degrees F for about 5 to 10 minutes or fragrant. Cool before chopping.
