Pear and mixed berries bread

Guess who decided to have a go at making bread?
I first fell in love with pear and raspberry bread at a cafe recently. But at $3 a slice, I figured I could make a whole loaf for the same dollars. And so I did. My loaf probably does not look as pretty but it tastes very much the same. And because it's homemade, I can control the amount of sugar and fruit and oil that goes into it. My recipe below is loaded up with fruits and uses only one-third a cup of sugar so it's a lot less evil than it looks.
Pear and mixed berries bread:

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 lightly beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup olive oil 
  • 1 pear, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries

Method
  1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease a 10cm x 20cm loaf tin. Sift flour into a large bowl. Add brown sugar, and bicarbonate of soda.
  2. Place eggs, milk and olive oil in a large bowl and whisk until well combined. Stir through pear and mixed berries.
  3. Pour the mixture into the centre of the flour mixture, folding gently until just combined. Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf tin. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Remove from oven and set aside to cool for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Oh wow! Here's another recipe of yours that I've got to try. i know what you mean. 9 times out of 10, the cakes that I've tried in cafes and fancy patisserie haven't pass muster. They're always way too sweet and rather dry.

Yum. I love fruit bread. This feels like an autumn recipe so I will save it make it in a month or so, when the fruits are in season. Except I will probably slather mine in butter, thus undoing all your healthy good work!

This recipe looks delightful and i love that it is not overly sweet..so perfect for my Asian's palette. I have never come across a bread recipe that uses pear and berries, this one is worth experimenting. Perhaps i can add peaches. Thanks for sharing.
