Soft Orchard Fruit Loaf
1 hr 20 min.
Preheat the oven to 160°C | 325F | gas 3. Grease and line a 2lb loaf tin.
Beat the butter and sugar together, then whisk in the eggs a little at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract and cinnamon.
Using a metal spoon, fold in the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the pears.
Pour into a loaf tin, trying to ensure the pears are evenly distributed and bake for 1 hour or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
Leave to cool in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
