Pear Pecan Bread

Every once in a while I stand in my pantry and look around, what am I forgetting is here? Is there something that will be going out of date? My kids would probably play the game “Who can find an item with the oldest date”. This recipe is to use a can of pears found on the bottom shelf, back behind the cans of pumpkin I am using because it’s fall! Definitely a delicious way to use up that almost old can of pears!

Pear Pecan Bread

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 (15 oz) can pears, drained, reserve juice
1¾ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2-1 cup chopped pecans (as desired)
cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 350°. In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Chop pears fairly small and mix into creamed mixture. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Put reserved juice into liquid measuring cup and add enough milk to make 1 cup. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternately with pear juice mixture. Fold in chopped pecans. Spray three small loaf pans with nonstick spray and pour batter into pans. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake for 35 minutes. Cool in pans for 10 minutes, remove from pans and cool completely on wire rack.
