  • 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.

  • 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.

Tips
